The Sanctuary City Project

Project Lead: Marangeli Mejia Rabell

Location: Philadelphia, PA

Partner Organizations: Philadelphia Latino Film Festival

Description: This project will be a collection of Public Service Announcements (PSAs) produced by local young artists focused on a) promoting a positive image of living in a city that has identified itself as a Sanctuary City for immigrants and b) promoting and advocating for the idea of a Policy on Belonging (and possibly other platform points), as featured in the USDAC’s Policy and Action platform. In addition to promoting the Policy on Belonging, these PSA’s will serve as a means of starting dialogue with city agencies about employing artists to produce PSA’s that foster cultural citizenship and belonging.
