The Cambridge Migration Society presents a seminar on the topic of sanctuary in the US, featuring members of sanctuaries in New York.

Following the recent and increasingly aggressive anti-immigration policies in the United States, many houses of worships and their communities have opened their doors to offer physical sanctuary to migrants in danger of deportation. The sanctuary movement, however, has a longer history in the struggle for migrant rights in the United States, going back to the 1980s when thousands of Central Americans sought refuge escaping US sanctioned civil wars in the region.

With leading community organizers from New York, we will be discussing the current state of the movement, its history, its political implications beyond issues of migration, and the profound critical potentialities against the nation-state paradigms under neoliberal regimes.
