A guide TO radical welcomE & collective care

With so many communities facing injustice and violence, we are responding by coming together in solidarity, learning how to boldly intervene as effective allies, and reconnecting to each other, our neighbors, and the world. We believe it's time for not just a policy of sanctuary but a Practice of Sanctuary -- one rooted in love, justice, and the understanding that our liberation is bound.

“Radical welcoming is a revolutionary leap of faith that says that I am ready to be changed. I am willing to dismantle everything I know to be in active loving relationship. I am willing to actively participate in co-creating a world that i can’t yet see in order for you to fully show up. It’s this idea that ... everyone's voice, everyone's presence and everyone’s power is welcome.”

Teo Drake, Transforming Hearts Collective

“Creating sanctuary in our local communities will require focusing on places and people many of us tend not to notice. There is no silver-bullet plan. There is no national government or national movement leader who will come save us. To jumpstart ourselves, we have to start where we are, where we live, and we have to get out of our bubbles.”
