Sanctuary Movements and Sanctuary Congregations Today

Sanctuary Movement and Sanctuary Congregations Today:

Moral and Legal Considerations

Several dozen Twin Cities faith institutions are participating in today’s sanctuary movement as either sanctuary or supporting congregations. The Edina Citizens’ Human Rights Committee is holding a talk about this issue.

This event will be held on Thursday, June 15 at Edina City Hall, 4801 West 50th Street, Edina, from 7:00-9:00 pm. The talk is free and open to the public; no reservations are necessary. Two standard CLE credits are available for lawyers, two ‘clock hours’ for educators.

John Medeiros, J.D., attorney at Myers Thompson, an immigration and nationality law firm, will describe the sanctuary movement’s history and key legal issues today. Rabbi Michael Adam Latz will discuss Congregation Shir Tikvah’s story of becoming a sanctuary synagogue.

Co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters- Edina and World Without Genocide at Mitchell Hamline School of Law.
