DU Community Support for Sanctuary Campus

Update: We are closing in on 900 signatures now! Wow!!

Please co-sign this letter if you want to help stop people from potentially being deported off of the DU Campus.

Dear Chancellor Chopp,

In the wake of the presidential election, we, University of Denver Community Members, strongly urge you to immediately investigate the possibility of our campus serving as a sanctuary for students, staff, and their family members who face deportation under President-elect Donald J. Trump’s proposed policies.

Faculty members have raised this as a concrete action the University can take to support and protect valued members of our community. We write in support of their suggestion. We hope that Denver police officers cannot enter the campus without permission of our University. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers also may be subject to similar restrictions.

We ask that you immediately develop a protocol for our University to serve as a sanctuary campus. Like the students and staff who make DU what it is, Alumni too once called its campus our home. A home is supposed to be safe. We owe it to the most vulnerable members of our community to ensure that it stays that way. It is our responsibility to ensure that DU remains a place that actively protects the rights and safety of its community.

If President-elect Trump implements his promised policies and we do nothing, DU's commitment to diversity, justice, and inclusion will be inconsequential. This is not a moment in which we can afford silence or passivity.

Awaiting your action,
Sincerely,

Trace Reddell
