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.

Immigrants and Allies March in Philadelphia

Walk A Mile in Our Shoes:  Immigrants and Allies March Through Center City Philadelphia
When: Wednesday 24th of August, 3 to 5 pm
Where: Meet in Love Park at the LOVE statue at 3 pm

Immigrants and allies will march together through Center City to show that we are united in our struggle to make Philadelphia a more just and welcoming city for immigrants. We ask our city officials to walk a mile in our shoes,  to understand the immigrant experience, and to stop unjust deportations and the separation of hard-working families and communities!  We will march from Love Park to the Liberty Bell, returning to City Hall by 5pm.  Using the model of the Via Crusis / Stations of the Cross, we will be making stops along the way to reflect with testimonies, songs, and prayers on the suffering of immigrants in Philadelphia.  See complete route map below.
