Special Note from Executive Director: Sanctuary Cities

Dear Friends of Enroot:

Like many of you, I’ve found this week’s headlines particularly unsettling. Many of the moves of the President Trump administration seem to violate the values our country holds most dear. For the students and families Enroot serves, they create confusion and anxiety about an uncertain future.

While it can be easy to feel disempowered during  such a barrage of difficult news, I feel more grateful than ever to be working with all of you. We are ensuring Enroot students know they are safe and welcome here, and that we remain more committed to their success than ever. 

I'm also proud that our local leaders in Cambridge and Somerville joined dozens of leaders across the country in responding with unflinching commitment to uphold our values and honor our country's legacy of welcoming immigrants.

Especially right now, thank you for all you do for Enroot students!
