Speak up for Sanctuary

Speak up for Sanctuary is a new programme designed to support people who may have little or no previous campaigning experience to recognise their power in making change, to speak up for refugee rights and to supercharge efforts to build welcoming and compassionate communities.

The course is perfect for people involved in City of Sanctuary groups and awarded organisations or anyone else hoping to turn their compassion into action.

This programme consists of a 1.5 hour webinar and a handbook jam-packed with information, resources and exercises. The webinar will include breakout rooms in order for people to share ideas and plan with other organisers and campaigners.

The course covers how to:

  • Counter hostile rhetoric
  • Engage with MPs and candidates
  • Mobilise your friends, family and the wider community
  • Safely challenge misinformation

The latest session was delivered by Hannah Green, City of Sanctuary UK Campaigns and Communications Manager and Odunayo ‘Comfort’ Adeyemi, Sanctuary Ambassador. Watch the recording here:
