Supporting Persons Without Documents and Fighting Wholesale Deportation

FRIENDS OF NEW SANCTUARY


Many organizations and individuals in Tulsa are working on the question of deportation, the well being of persons without documents, heavyhanded enforcement by the federal government, the demonization of immigrants and refugees, and the coarsening of language and attitudes around the goal of a diverse, vital society. Even as we pursue different strategies, we are glad to join with anyone who shares our fundamental commitments. We will be heard.

ACTION

ACTION (Allied Communities of Tulsa Inspiring Our Neighborhoods) is Tulsa's only broad-based organizing effort. Through their member institutions (congregations and non-profits), they teach the practical skills of public engagement to Tulsans. In so doing, ACTION aims to sustain a vibrant democratic culture in Tulsa, which builds the power necessary to effect change around issues that matter most to our families.

OKLAHOMA CALL FOR REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE

OCRJ is a group of organizations and individuals promoting reproductive justice in Oklahoma through education, empowerment, and advocacy. Our three organizational priorities are protecting reproductive freedom, maternal health, and keeping families together. We believe that reproductive justice includes the right to have or not to have a child and respect for families in all their forms. It supports access to sexual education, contraception, abortion care and pregnancy care as well as to the resources needed to raise children in safe and healthy circumstances, with good schools and healthcare and other elements necessary for bright futures regardless of immigration status.
