A People in Motion: Jews, Immigration, and Social Justice

Sunday, March 16, 2014 4:15 PM - 5:15 PM

The Jewish story is one of migration— our ancestors fled Egypt, our families fled Europe, and many of our friends have made Aliyah to Israel. We also have deep roots in social justice, feeling a strong obligation to stand up for those who have no voice. Having struggled to adjust to a society that did not always welcome our arrival, we understand the complexities of reforming our country’s broken immigration system. Furthermore, while we have been fortunate to find safety and prosperity in the United States, Jews have a critical voice in the ongoing debate on immigration reform. Join us for an interactive session where we will learn how our history and values guide our community’s advocacy on immigration and refugee issues. You will walk away with renewed energy to fight for social justice, as well as concrete tools to help you be a successful advocate.
