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

  •  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.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
