FAIRFIELD, Conn. — With the recent terror attacks and debate on travel bans and undocumented residents in the news, Fairfield Standing United will host a timely forum on sanctuary cities Thursday.
“Sanctuary City: What It Isn’t and Why Fairfield Should Care” will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m., June 8, at Fairfield Public Library’s Rotary Room, 1080 Old Post Road.
The event is free and open to the public.
Fairfield Standing United, a nonpartisan citizen action group, believes there is widespread misunderstanding about the term sanctuary city. The forum will address what it means to provide sanctuary, share some immigrants’ experiences and start open dialogue.
Speakers will include Rebecca Miller, a school social worker; Yasmin Rodriguez, an attorney for Esperanza Center for Law and Advocacy; and Julio Lopez-Varona, state director of Make the Road CT.
