Jairo Valencia

Community Outreach Officer

Jairo, a Colombian Refugee and Human Rights Defender, began working on the #DCSanctuary Campaign over three years ago, as part of a national effort to establish municipalities and other jurisdictions as “Sanctuary” locations for immigrants and refugees. Sanctuary spaces are locations where immigrants will be welcomed and kept safe from abusive, illegal policing and ICE action. Jairo is one of the founding organizers of the Sanctuary DMV (District-Maryland-Virginia) Coalition.
