Sanctuary in the Streets Training

Sunday, January 15, 2017 - 3:00pm to 7:00pm
First Unitarian Universalist Church, 4700 Grover Ave

With a new administration that is fueled by hate and ready to attack basic human rights of individuals and marginalized communities, Grassroots Leadership, ICE out of Austin, and the Austin Sanctuary Network have concluded that we MUST prepare for the incoming administration by actively building blocks of resistance through direct action and organizing. We will be hosting direct action trainings to create what we are calling Sanctuary in the Streets. We will build sanctuary networks around central Texas to push forward creating spaces of resistance against the upcoming administration’s deportation plans. We also want folks to take these skills and these abilities to struggle with communities that will be most affected by thiese policies.

Register now for the training on January 15th, 2017, from 3pm-7pm at First Unitarian Universalist Church.

Childcare will be provided upon request. Please email Peggy Morton at to reserve.
