New Sanctuary Coalition

Keeping families together and advocating against deportations

After careful consideration and deliberation by its Advisory Board, New Sanctuary Coalition has shifted its program focus, from direct services to friends in the immigrant community and their families who are caught in the unjust detention and deportation system in this country, to one of broader education about and advocacy towards ending the harms of that system. All of New Sanctuary’s programs are on hiatus, as it explores ways to use its resources to help others who are also engaged in this work.

We are profoundly grateful for the years of limitless dedication and hard work of our staff and the many, many hundreds of devoted volunteers who helped to define what a new sanctuary movement looks like and what a more just immigration system should be.

The Board also wishes to express its heartfelt gratitude for the work of its departing Executive Director, Ravi Ragbir, who has long been a significant leader in immigration rights advocacy, engaging people from across New York and beyond in the sacred work of helping thousands of immigrants who are seeking a better life in the United States.
