After a year of attacks on the U.S. refugee program, the number of refugees entering the country has dramatically slowed. At a time of unprecedented global need, the U.S. is failing to meet a basic obligation to victims of war, terror, torture, and persecution. In response, a coalition of Jewish congregations and organizations have come together with HIAS to hold a community-wide Jews For Refugees Assembly on Thursday, March 22nd at Temple Beth Am in Los Angeles.
The Assembly will begin at 6:00pm with an organizational fair featuring local and national refugee assistance organizations to connect participants to volunteer opportunities, advocacy initiatives, and other ways to take action. There will also be delicious food available cooked by refugees involved with Miry’s List! Bring your 10th-12th graders who will have a chance to learn from Camp Gilboa about voter registration and how to engage their peers in voter turnout. At 7:00pm, elected officials, refugee speakers, policy experts, and community leaders will address the assembly to share policy updates, stories, ways to get involved, and more. Together, we will raise a powerful, moral voice to ensure that refugees can find safety and welcome in the United States.
