Global Activism: Providing a 'New Sanctuary' for Chicago's immigrants

It's time for our Global Activism segment. Each Thursday, we highlight a person who decided to make the world a better place.

The New Sanctuary Coalition is a group of 13 congregations working together to help immigrants and their families here in Chicago. They also work with legislators to help reform immigration laws and policies.

We talk with the New Sanctuary Coalition’s Rev. Sara Wohlleb and Marcela Hernandez.
