Sanctuary Restaurant Movement
We are asking you to literally put your money where your mouth is by supporting the Sanctuary Restaurants (www.SanctuaryRestaurants.org) movement.
Launched earlier this month by Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC United, www.ROCUnited.com), a restaurant worker advocacy group, and www.Presente.org, a Latinx social justice organization, Sanctuary Restaurants provides resources to restaurants, enabling them to support our community, including our undocumented immigrants.
We won’t swallow hate and we need to make sure that the restaurants that we are giving our money to are standing with all-of-us. Here’s how: Go to www.SanctuaryRestaurants.org, read about the movement, and sign up. (5 minutes) Print these cards. Keep them in your wallet, and take them to your favorite restaurants next time you go. Or call or email your favorite restaurants and tell them about Sanctuary Restaurants. (5 minutes)
