Urgent Call To All New School Students: Sanctuary Banner to Protect Immigrants, Other Targeted Populations

The call, from a coalition of individuals and groups working alongside the official New Sanctuary Coalition NYC, is for a graphic design that would convincingly convey the principles and politics of the Sanctuary project to all. The design (to be used on pins, stickers, posters, etc.) will be posted by organizations, institutions or individuals that want to demonstrate their support for or status as sanctuary. Please check the information sheet that lays down some of the history of the Sanctuary movement and the related concepts.
After the recent election, many communities have felt more vulnerable than ever. Trump’s rhetoric, Federal immigration enforcement authorities and parts of the populace have been lined up against undocumented migrants but also against nonwhite immigrants, Arab and Muslim citizens, people of color, activists and dissenters of any stripe. It is important that we be able to say NO! to such actions, policies and laws.
The design should provide the movement with a graphic identity, embody the motto of the coalition – ‘a radical
welcome’ – and include the word sanctuary.
