AMM IS A SANCTUARY CHURCH

THANK YOU for your interest in supporting our work to provide Sanctuary in Albuquerque. 


Sanctuary Task Force Co-Clerks:
Sara Keeney (505) 379-3392 and Marian Bock (505) 480-8671

 

There are several ways to help.

  • Accompaniment for Sanctuary: AMM  provided Sanctuary for a twenty-one month period in 2017-18.  During  that time, and during any future time when AMM is providing Sanctuary  to a person at imminent risk of deportation, trained volunteers take  shifts at the Meeting House—four hours at a time during the day, and 12  hours overnight. Similarly, volunteers took shifts for accompaniment at a  second site in Albuquerque, where a friend lived in Sanctuary for two years, from March 2017-late 2018.  


  • As a Sanctuary Church AMM stands ready to provide  Sanctuary at any time the need should arise, which would result in an  immediate call for accompaniment volunteers.  If you are interested in  learning more about how to support Sanctuary accompaniment, please  contact the New Mexico Faith Coalition for Immigrant Justice. nmfcorganizer@gmail.com


  • Make a donation to the New Mexico Faith Coalition for Immigrant Justice (NMFCIJ).  The Coalition will use your gift to help people living in Sanctuary.  Your donation will be tax-deductible. 
    • Mail a check to P.O. Box 40679, Albuquerque, NM 87196-0679
      Write “Sanctuary” on the memo line.
    • Donate on line at www.nmimmigrantjustice.org


  •  AMM continues to support our Sanctuary Friend, Emma, in her immigration journey.  Photos of the paintings she created while living in Sanctuary are available as greeting cards through Sanctuary Works, a small business that both sells cards and receives donations in Emma's support.  To purchase cards or for more information visit:  Sanctuary Works


  • If you wish to contribute in another way, please call Sara or Marian.  AMM is not in a position to accept gifts of goods or money at our Meeting House.
