Sanctuary is a place where love and protection are living realities. Based on this, the Austin Sanctuary Network (ASN) is a coalition of faith communities, immigrants and other community members of civil society and organizations in and around Austin, Texas, that support immigrants fleeing violence or in danger of deportation.

The Austin Sanctuary Network stands in solidarity with undocumented immigrants who are being held unjustly and denied asylum status. ASN demands an immediate stop to raids and for-profit detention, an end to all deportations and updated immigration laws that are just, fair and humane. ASN seeks to create a community to provide physical sanctuary for immigrants, who have exhausted their legal options and face deportation, along with offering accompaniment by giving rides to immigrant friends reporting to immigration court hearings, ankle monitor check-ins and other places in an effort to gain more pathways to safety for our neighbors. Congregations offering physical Sanctuary supply shelter, needed food, clothing and interaction with the external world, including legal, medical and educational assistance.

100% of proceeds from the concert ticket sales will go to the Austin Sanctuary Network.
