Update from City of Sanctuary on the Borders Bill

Dear Valley of Sanctuary members and supporters:

Please see below an update from the national movement about the Bill as it progresses.

Our two local MPs, Craig Whittaker and Holly Lynch, are on the Borders Bill committee. We have a huge opportunity here in Calderdale to have our voices heard. We need to let them know the extent of the welcoming community and great contributions from people seeking sanctuary in Calderdale, and that the harmful proposals in the Bill do not represent the wishes of our local community.
