Every week, people gather in places of worship to reconnect with the divine and community, as well as to receive encouragement and challenge to live out their faith. This year, Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity (IM4HI) and Free SF have invited a team of speakers to share their migration story in the Pulpit/Bimah/Minbar/Sangha. As a commitment to uphold the dignity and sanctity of every human person, IM4HI and Free SF’s Migrants in the Pulpit / Bimah / Minbar / Sangha, positions migrants to speak to congregations’ faith values that broaden and humanize the immigrant experience.  

In light of San Francisco’s history as a Sanctuary City and Sanctuary Movement by people of faith, Migrants in the Pulpit / Bimah / Minbar / Sangha is an important and enriching opportunity for congregations to hear from those directly impacted by today’s immigration policies, start conversations about immigrant justice among faith communities, and to affirm the power of migrant voices in our city and within our congregations.

If you are part of a congregation and would like to invite a speaker please contact Sarah Lee at sanctuary@im4humanintegrity.org for further consultation. See info guide and FAQ here.
