CMSOnAir | Linda Rabben on Sanctuary
CMSOnAir | Linda Rabben on Sanctuary This timely episode of CMSOnAir features an interview with Linda Rabben, Associate Research Professor at the University of Maryland, on the refuge and protection of migrants and refugees - also known as 'sanctuary.' Professor Rabben traces sanctuary back to its faith traditions and examines its central role in past and present movements that sought to welcome, support, shelter and advocate for vulnerable populations. Her research has just been released in a second edition of her book, Sanctuary and Asylum: A Social and Political History (University of Washington Press 2016).

Sanctuary - Friends Meeting at CambridgeFriends Meeting at Cambridge

fmcquaker.org [cached]

On March 1, Linda Rabben, anthropologist at University of Maryland, human rights advocate, and attender of Adelphia, MD, Friends Meeting gave a talk about the history of sanctuary movements in the United States and led a lively discussion about the 1980's sanctuary movement and the current situation.
This event was sponsored by FMC's Friends for Racial Justice committee. Dr. Rabben's interest in sanctuary movements began when she was a consultant to the ACLU and asked how she, personally, could help. The ACLU put her in touch with a young woman who had been detained prior to deportation. In working to prevent that woman's deportation, Dr. Rabben became convinced of the need to understand sanctuary movements more generally and the way our immigration-related legal system works in particular.
