Universities of Sanctuary Support for Sanctuary Campuses across the USA

A message of solidarity

30th January 2017

The Universities of Sanctuary network of UK and Ireland sends support and solidarity to Sanctuary Campuses across the USA.Whilst Universities of Sanctuary UK and Ireland is not officially affiliated to any Sanctuary Campus in the US, we wish to publicly state that we share their values of providing welcome, safety and sanctuary in a show of solidarity.
In these times of uncertainty when the basic values of safety and welcome for people seeking sanctuary and migrants is under threat from the US administration, it is important we stand together. Like our friends across the USA we vehemently oppose any proposal or statements calling for a ban on refugees, as well as discrimination based on religion or nationality.
We believe in welcome and inclusion for all, regardless of race, religion, class, gender, sexuality, immigration status or beliefs.
