Community members and city leaders discuss a plan to make Auburn an inclusive or sanctuary city at a town hall event Tuesday, March 21.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the parish hall at St. Mathew Episcopal Church, 123 L St. NE.

Everyone is welcome.

The Washington Community Action Network (Washington CAN), formally undocumented storytellers, Auburn City Council members and organizational partners will participate in the town hall.

Sanctuary city status would protect undocumented immigrants.

The City Council has not made an official declaration, prompting more debate.
