Sanctuary Congregations March
Rev. Mary Kay Totty and Elaine Friebele were among those in the Sanctuary Congegations March, starting from Foundry UMC, heading down 16th Street to the White House. Recently the Dumbartoh Church Council declared, "We pledge ourselves to support refugees escaping violence and personal threats as they seek welcome in our home jurisdictions and neighborhoods. And we pledge to renew our historical role as a sanctuary congregation willing to shelter and support those who fear for their lives or through no fault of their own face legal actions threatening their safety and well-being."
