Organize. Build Power. Win Justice.

At PVWC, we see sanctuary as a powerful form of resistance to our country’s increased efforts to deport immigrants away from their communities and families.

We partner with individual sanctuary leaders in organizing public campaigns with the goals of:

  • Achieving the leader’s freedom
  • Converting sanctuary supporters to be advocates for immigrant rights
  • Raising community awareness of the damage deportation creates
  • Transforming US laws to better welcome immigrants.
