Organize where you live
How do we take our commitment to sanctuary and solidarity, and translate that to how we show up in our homes, neighborhoods, and at the wider community level? How can our organizing help us not only resist, but live our vision and values of interdependence and mutual care?
It can be difficult to know where to start. Below are 3 ways you can get started:
Download a #SanctuaryHomes sign and put it on your fridge or window
Let folks know that you aspire to be a safe contact
Take a picture of you with your sign and post it to your social networks with the tag #SanctuaryHomes
Have a conversation with a person who feels especially vulnerable or targeted right now
If you employ a domestic worker, you can use our conversation tips for talking to your employee. Offer to review relevant resources together.
You can also have this conversation with anyone where there is an established relationship, i.e. someone who works in your building or a person you see everyday at a local business.
In these times, having someone check in and see how you’re doing is extremely powerful.
Share and bring your friends and network together
Hold a family bake sale or summer BBQ to raise money for a local group that is under attack.
Host a Kitchen Table Conversation. Get our guide, and we'll help you set it up.
