East Bay Sanctuary Covenant
Our Grantees

For more than 30 years, the East Bay Sanctuary Covenant (EBSC) has offered support and legal services to those escaping war, political persecution, intolerance, exploitation and other expressions of violence. From its basement office in a church in Berkeley, Calif., EBSC, which recently celebrated its 3,000th asylum success, advocates on behalf of low-income and indigent refugees and immigrants. An asylum grant allows individuals to stay in the United States, helps them to petition for family members, and provides a path for residency and naturalization.
