4-15-21 Vicky Chavez Sanctuary Press Conference

16 April 2021


We are thrilled to announce that Vicky Chavez, who has lived in Sanctuary in our church for 39 months, received a stay of deportation for one year. Vicky and her daughters were welcomed to join the community outside the church’s walls by many people today including SLC Mayor Erin Mendenhall who said, “Salt Lake City welcomes you—we have welcomed you all along. You and your daughters are valued members of our community.”

Thank you to our entire congregation for your endless support over the last three years, and to our community partners who helped make this joyous day possible!
