The Sanctuary Research Circle is a cross-collegiate, interdisciplinary, and advocacy group committed to immigration research. Our work brings critical ethnic studies and social justice frameworks with a community-based approach to examine the pressing issues facing immigrants today. Scholars from CLA, IHRC, and the Center for New Americans come together to educate and train our community on the sanctuary movement and immigrant rights by developing workshops, curriculum, and resources, and by collaborating with community partners to advocate for the dignity and rights of all immigrants.
