I am so excited to share this post with you! With Christianity Today, I had the opportunity to interview Alexia Salvatierra, a pastor and community organizer who has been instrumental in the New Sanctuary Movement to protect and stand with immigrants facing deportation. She is also co-founder of the Matthew 25 pledge, which is a bipartisan Christian commitment to protect and defend vulnerable people in the name of Jesus.
The conversation we shared was so powerful, and I wish every single word could have been included in the interview. But her connection and sensitivity to the real suffering of immigrants, as well as her deep spirituality in supporting the vulnerable inspired me. It's clear how her faith guides her work and how the church can be an active expression of God's love and justice.
