The Sanctuary Movement, An Historical Basis of Hope!

March 29, 2012

This March 24, 2012 – the 32nd  anniversary of the martyrdom of  Oscar Romero – we also mark the 30th anniversary of the public sanctuary movement.

Learn more about this movement with a set of oral histories entitled: The Sanctuary Movement, An Historical Basis of Hope!  The oral history was compiled and edited by Eileen Purcell, one of the original co-founders of the movement and former Executive Director of the SHARE Foundation.  This compilation includes the voices of our beloved Gus Schultz, Marilyn Chilcote, Bob McKenzie, Bill  O’Donnell, as well as organizer Bob Fitch and veteran fundraiser Bernie Mazel. These stories trace the origins of the sanctuary movement, from the Vietnam War to the wars in Central America. The full collection has been deposited at the UC Berkeley Graduate Theological Union (GTU) Library and is available to the public.  Add your voice to the archive!  Write and share your story by sending it to the SHARE Foundation Sanctuary Oral History  Project at jose@share-elsalvador.org!
