Supporting ‘Hull City of Sanctuary’

Hull Unitarians are pleased to support  the Hull City of Sanctuary initiative

Hull City of Sanctuary is a new initiative to make Hull a recognised place of welcome and safety for people in need of sanctuary. A “sanctuary” is a safe place, where people can live without the threat of violence or death, which was the reason they fled from their own country. Britain has a long and honourable history of giving sanctuary to refugees, for many centuries.

As the UN Convention puts it, refugees are “outside their own country owing to a well founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion”.
