All donations will benefit the Unitarian Society of Northampton’s Sanctuary Fund. Since April, 2018, the Society has provided sanctuary to Irida Kakhtiranova, a mother, wife, friend, community member, worker and U.S. taxpayer. Irida came to the Unitarian Society via the Pioneer Valley Workers Center, a local nonprofit working tirelessly towards immigration justice. Sanctuary allows someone who is in danger of deportation to have a protected place to live while making a case for asylum or citizenship-They have built lives and contributed to their communities here; for many, return to their native countries would destroy a family or pose a threat to their safety.
