Living in Sanctuary,  is a collaborative project that explores the links between the migration crisis and religious solidarity, the intersection across religion and politics and, how religious leaders, faith communities, migrants, and refugee families are transforming sacred spaces, redefining concepts such as hospitality, refuge, citizenship, spirituality, faith, asylum, morality, and justice. Through a series of photos, texts, drawings, video and audio interviews with religious leaders and immigrants, we see how the criminalization and persecution of migrants is changing the role of faith leaders, their institutions and communities. Using archives on the history of the 1980s sanctuary movement, the project  contextualize this moment within the longer legacy of faith-based resistance movements.
