City of Sanctuary initiative began in Exeter at our 2012 Interfaith Week celebration. This has been taken up by a group from the university in association with Refugee Support Devon based in Exeter which organised a very informative lecture series earlier in 2015.
Exeter City of Sanctuary (ECOS) now seeks to consolidate the goodwill shown and asks that members from various sectors of Exeter life sign the pledge below. Formal support for ECOS is now sought from the various faith groups in the city.
You are invited to draw attention to the pledge in your respective communities and asked that the pledge be signed by the appropriate authority on behalf of that community, preferably with a realistic suggestion of what practical actions could be taken in realising that pledge. Pledges from individuals are also welcome.
Please then either email them to Emma at email@example.com or post to Exeter City of Sanctuary, Exeter Community Centre, 17 St Davids Hill, Exeter EX4 3RG.
