SANCTUARY IN THE STREETS:
THE RAPID RESPONSE TEAM OF WESTERN MASS

Dear companer@s and friends of the Pioneer Valley Workers Center, The time has come for us to stand with one another, as neighbors, friends and strangers. We invite you to join a new solidarity network, Sanctuary in the Streets (SiS), to protect all people of the Pioneer Valley from acts of hate and from deportation.

As a memberĀ of the Network, you will receive emergency emails and texts that notify you of peaceful public actions in response to immediate needs. We imagine that the Network will be called upon to bear public witness to active deportations, to hold quick-response public rallies against acts of hate, and to respond to injustice in ways that we cannot yet know. We are working on finalizing plans for a 24-hour Hotline number to receive reports of deportations and acts of hate. We will need your help in publicizing this number widely. We will also be contacting the Network with multiple training opportunities in the upcoming months, to ensure all actions taken by Sanctuary in the Streets are unified, peaceful, and remind our country of our better selves. Now is the time to come together and build an infrastructure of love and power, starting right here at home in the Pioneer Valley.
