Women of Resolution, a documentary film about four immigrant women in sanctuary at Colorado churches, will be shown at UUFD in the Sanctuary March 1 at 7 pm.

The UUFD immigration team is partnering with the local Friends Meeting and Rosa Belongs Here to sponsor the showing, which is open to the public.

Suggested donation is $10 – 20. Proceeds will help support Rosa Sabido, who is featured in the film and has been in sanctuary at the Mancos United Methodist Church for over 19 months. We welcome the opportunity to share this moving film with the community.

“Women of Resolution” brings to stage the stories of Araceli Velasquez, Ingrid Encalada Latorre, Rosa Sabido, and Sandra Lopez. These four Colorado women took Sanctuary in their fight for justice and to stay with their families, and they are the authors of The People’s Resolution, which offers a simple, replicable, legislative solution designed to prevent other Colorado families from being separated. Because the women can’t leave Sanctuary to read their own stories, or come to the legislature to advocate for their rights, their stories were read on stage by members of the Colorado State Legislature – including Rep. Jonathan Singer, Rep. Leslie Herod, and Rep. Joseph Salazar. The reading were interwoven with photographs by Joel Dyer and music by Teresita Lozano. The reading were followed by a poetic response from national slam poet winner Dominique Christina. This event was part of Motus Theater’s UndocuAmerica Performance and Media Project
