Access Without Fear-Sanctuary City Campaign Info Night

Wednesday, June 28th @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

A new community group, Solidarity Kingston, has formed and is working on an Access without Fear – Sanctuary City Campaign focused on:
1. making the Kingston community a safe and welcoming place for people and families who lack valid immigration papers, including promoting access to municipal services without fear of deportation and
2. developing grassroots strategies for providing assistance to community members during immigration enforcement proceedings.

Come to our information night to:
– learn about the Access without Fear – Sanctuary City campaign and why supporting undocumented people in our community matters
– discuss ideas for how we as individuals and groups can act in solidarity with undocumented people in our city
– learn about how we see this campaign as part of our broader vision of creating a solidarity city where all people are able to meet their basic needs, with dignity and on their own terms.

A vegetarian meal will be provided and all are welcome. For more information about this event contact solidarity.kingston (at) gmail (dot) com or send us a message on facebook.

About Solidarity Kingston: We want to live in a city in which all residents are able to meet their basic needs with dignity and on their own terms. A person’s income, (im)migration status, race, sexual orientation, gender/gender expression, ability, age or religion should not be a barrier to accessing the necessities of life, including but not limited to: food, shelter, heat, healthcare, transportation, education, and leisure time.

We want to collaborate with fellow Kingston residents to both change existing structures and create new ones. This will enable us to meet our basic needs, and realize our potentials as individuals, families, neighborhoods, and communities. The Access Without Fear – Sanctuary City campaign is our first step towards building local networks of solidarity and mutual aid.
