Policy roundtable 12: Sanctuary and refuge cities

While States build walls and fences, cities and towns are welcoming refugees and providing spaces of sanctuary to undocumented residents. Here we’ll discuss the role of cities and towns in challenging the rise of the far right and how local governments and social movements can work to protect human rights and forge inclusive, non-ethnocentric identities.
