Urge City Council: Make Forest Grove a Sanctuary City

Take action today!

Dear Friends, 

This past Monday evening, a powerful representation of Adelante participants, staff and other community members testified and bore witness in support of declaring Forest Grove a Sanctuary City. We packed City Hall! 

Read the article in the Forest Grove News-Times. 

Now we need to bring this effort home by flooding the City's email box with our strong support for a Sanctuary City declaration. 

Please take action today!

Even if you don't live in Forest Grove, your voice is important as someone whose efforts support residents of Forest Grove.

Please take 5 minutes to reword this short note to your liking and send it to the City Recorder, Anna Ruggles at aruggles@forestgrove-or.gov.

Dear Mayor Truax and Forest Grove City Councilors:

As a (concerned citizen, supporter of Adelante Mujeres, Adelante Mujeres volunteer), I respectfully ask that you designate Forest Grove a Sanctuary City. A general declaration of inclusivity is insufficiently robust at this time given the deep concern and fear our community is experiencing. 

These times call for a bold response. This is why the term Sanctuary City, which carries deep symbolic significance, is needed. It is recognized nationally and historically as a clear designation of support for immigrants and other persecuted groups. 

Thank you for leading with courage,

(Your Name)
