Sanctuary Meetings

Gloucestershire Quakers are a Sanctuary Area Meeting. Local Meetings at Cheltenham and Nailsworth are as well. This means we are committed to creating a culture of welcome for all those seeking sanctuary in Britain, by
– joining local efforts to oppose the ‘hostile environment’
– exposing the destitution and suffering caused by the present system
– confronting racism wherever we meet it
– campaigning for justice in the laws on detention and deportations
We support http://www.garas.org.uk who work with refugees and asylum seekers in Gloucestershire.
