Central Baptist Church's affiliation with the Philadelphia New Sanctuary Movement is a renewal of CBC's prophetic engagement in the original Sanctuary Movement, declared in a congregational vote in 1984. This reaffirmation today of our historic commitment is grounded in our congregation's vision of “justice rooted in spirituality” and “making a difference in community.”-Congregational Meeting April 25th, 2010.

Rally with DreamActivists this Saturday in Philadelphia

Rally in Philadelphia on Saturday with undocumented youth of Pennsylvania and allies!   Marta DeAngulo and other students at Eastern University have organized a van from EU.   We're all invited to be part of this event! 


1pm to 3pm Saturday, March 19th, at Independence Mall (next to Independence Visitor Center)
March 14 - 21 has been declared National Coming Out Week, the time when undocumented youth break the silence and tell a friend, teacher, facebook, or others of their immigration status. March 19th, 2011, the undocumented youth of Pennsylvania will come out of the shadows. We will declare ourselves undocumented, unafraid, and unapologetic to our community. Now is the time to fight back and make sure that everyone know that we are still not afraid and will not be silenced!   Rally with us and our allies! Out of the shadows and into the streets!
