ABOUT

The Sanctuary Movement of Atlanta (SMA) is an interfaith, multicultural immigrant rights organization.

We welcome the participation of individuals and congregations who covenant with us to affirm that:

  • All human beings are loved by their creator and deserving of a safe place to live, work, and worship without fear, without regard to nationality, ethnicity, religion, economic status, immigration status, gender, ability, age, or sexual orientation;
  • We have a responsibility to ensure the welfare of all in our decision making, and to hold the governments of city, county, state, and country accountable;
  • We advocate for laws that ensure the rights of immigrants.
  • We reject using power or speech to bully, intimidate, threaten, or cause emotional or physical violence.
