Sanctuary and Solidarity on the Banks of the Nile

by Rev. Alison Harrington 04-23-2021

“Communities of color have survived violence, and repression, and persecution for generations, not because of some princess swooping in to save the day, but because they have been protecting, sheltering, and defending one another. Communities of color and undocumented communities have created sanctuary spaces over and over again as part of a strategy of survival. And white, documented people have just recently stumbled into this work and unfortunately, not only have we often acted as if we invented it, but we’ve cast ourselves in the starring role ... instead of following the leadership of those already doing the work.”
