A majority of this grant funding will be dedicated towards community safety training in response to recent attacks on community members and for continuous staff training and wellness support.

Columbia County Sanctuary Movement’s mission is to organize with immigrants and allies to collectively support, empower and defend our communities. Emerging from a gathering of Latinx community members and allies in 2016, the organization’s first achievement was prohibiting collaboration between city police and ICE officials.
