The Sanctuaries | Washington, DC



Make a real difference.

Since 2013, we've witnessed the arts do things we never could have imagined.

From securing legal representation for refugees, to preventing the displacement of public housing residents, to mobilizing tens of thousands of people to advocate for the environment, racial equity, and the dignity of the poor — we've built a sacred community with hundreds of artists from different racial and religious backgrounds, who are activating people to address some of the most pressing issues of our time.

We’ve come a long way. But we need your help to keep going. Up until this point, we've relied on grants to help fund our work, but those come and go, and we've had to scale back a lot of really good work because funding suddenly fell through.

Will you help us spend more time making a difference?
Your generosity means the world. And it matters.
