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 (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.
