Opening Doors for New Americans since 1882
Peter is the co-founder and co-director of New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia (NSM). The New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia (NSM) is an interfaith, multicultural immigrant rights organization. NSM builds alliances across faith, ethnicity, and class, in order to empower affected communities. NSM emphasize the telling of stories to give voice to injustices faced by immigrants, documented and undocumented alike, and to enact policies that reflect faith values of hospitality, justice and dignity. Peter will discuss the work of NSM with immigrants in Philadelphia and the impact immigration laws have had on individuals in our communities and the perspective of members of NSM of their work with these immigrant families.
