They will join fellow elected officials and community members to mark one full month since Amanda Morales Guerra defied a federal deportation order and took refuge in an uptown church. Holy Rood Church has provided sanctuary to her and her family ever since, with her unable to leave for fear of ICE officers.
This act of courage and rebellion has sparked an outpouring of support in the northern Manhattan community, who will gather with her, her children, the New Sanctuary Coalition and members of the Holy Rood Church to call for the federal government to allow her to stay the in country with her three children, all of whom are U.S. citizens.
Council Member Rodriguez has coordinated artistic performances and words of encouragement from local community organizations in order to uplift Amanda’s fight. This will be a display of the widespread support for her struggle.
