Sanctuary begins at home

For those of us who employ domestic workers—house cleaners, childcare providers, home attendants—one big thing we can do is support the women, people of color, and/or immigrants who work in our homes and who are being targeted by this administration. For those of us who aren’t employers or care consumers, our homes can still serve as a center of moral action, transforming where we live into a foundation for building the world as it should be

The #SanctuaryHomes campaign lays out concrete steps and resources so we can all do our part to ensure the dignity and integrity of every individual in all of our communities is respected and preserved. These are things we can do in our homes, in our neighborhoods or networks, and in the wider community.
