Our Mission

The New Sanctuary Movement of Atlanta is an interfaith and multicultural immigrant rights organization. The main tenets of the organization include:

• 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.
