The City of Refuge action has been postponed due to blizzard conditions predicted for the New York City area. A new date for the action will be announced soon.


To bring attention to the need for more humanitarian refugee policies, Trinity is partnering with a coalition of organizations, including African Communities Together and the Interfaith Center of New York, to host a refugee action, including two marches, teach-ins, interfaith services, and an overnight “refugee tent city.” To RSVP, fill out the form below.
