Campaign: Sanctuary Schools

The Chicago Teachers Union is committed to protecting our students, our schools and our communities.
Although Chicago calls itself a “Sanctuary City,” this city still needs to adopt many more actions and policies that would increase protections for all students—especially our most vulnerable students who are immigrants, Muslims and LGBTQI. Even as the union joins the fight for these changes, we hope to provide resources for our members to use right now in supporting and protecting students who live under direct threat every day.
