The Sanctuary is a grassroots effort of pro-migrant, human-rights, and civil-rights bloggers and on-line activists, dedicated to the enactment of meaningful immigration reform that is practical, rational, fair and most of all humane.
The mission of The Sanctuary is to create a broad community of on-line activists, and translate digital activism into real-world, practical action.
By connecting mainstream organizations and advocacy groups who have traditionally dominated the debate, with grassroots organizers, migrant youth, community leaders, and new-media activists, a unique opportunity for interaction can be created.
We hope to foster an on-line community that facilitates not only cooperation, but allows for the free exchange of ideas and the empowerment of those whose voices are not usually heard in the greater debate.
Our goal is to allow all those working towards meaningful reform and migrant-rights to interact, share ideas, and coordinate their efforts to better facilitate change.
The Sanctuary is officially affiliated with no specific political party or organization, yet is unequivocally a pro-migrant endeavor, and as such, supports all efforts to work towards meaningful immigration reform ... both legislatively and at the ballot box
