Seeking Asylum at our Borders

1500 16th St NW
Washington, DC 20036
United States


Tickets can be purchased here for $12.00 per person.

The issue of seeking asylum has been on our minds and televisions for several months. What is the distinction between a refugee and an asylum seeker? What legal rights and protections are currently provided under US law for this group of people? And how are these protections changing, impacting thousands of vulnerable people fleeing their home countries?

Come for an evening of learning, sharing, and taking action with HIAS, which is working both at our southern border as well as in the halls of Congress to address this critical issue. Vegetarian dinner will be provided.

This event is held in partnership with HIAS, the JCRC, and ADL.
