In the face of President Trump’s executive order slamming America’s doors to refugees, the Jewish community is mobilizing for the safety and dignity of victims of violence and persecution around the world.

Join us this Sunday, February 12, in New York's Battery Park, or at one of the many sister actions taking place across the country.

Help us promote our day of action, print out and distribute our flyer, and post on social media using the hashtag #JewsForRefugees.
