Chicago New Sanctuary Coalition



When a stranger resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the stranger. The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the stranger as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. (Leviticus 19: 33-34)



Our Mission 

The Chicago New Sanctuary Coalition is a coalition called to engage faith communities and leaders through education, advocacy, and action to work for immigrant justice.

Our Vision

We will educate all people about the failures of our nation's current immigration system. Through this transformative education, we will stand together as one prophetic voice demanding the most just and humane immigration policies necessary to ensure that not just our religious community, but our nation, is a sanctuary of peace and justice for all people.

Our Values

We believe in the dignity of all persons, regardless of their national origin. Together we will bear the fruit of Sanctuary: Justice, Unity, Physical and Emotional Safety, Equality, Solidarity and Peace.
