Are you energized by education and advocacy events during HIAS National Refugee Shabbat? Interested in working to protect and defend the rights of immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers? Here are some ways to take action:
Donate to organizations working to defend and advance the rights of immigrants and refugees
- HIAS is the global Jewish nonprofit that protects refugees—including women and children, and ethnic, religious, and sexual minorities—whose lives are in danger for being who they are. Guided by our values and history, HIAS helps refugees rebuild their lives in safety and advocates to ensure that all displaced people are treated with dignity. More info at @HIASrefugees and hias.org.
- Donate to HIAS: https://www.hias.org/donate
- Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) promotes justice by defending and advancing the rights of immigrants through direct legal services, systemic advocacy, and community education. Unrestricted gifts – meaning gifts that aren’t tied to a specific program – come almost entirely from individuals, and are what make it possible for NWIRP to react immediately to emergency situations, such as the Family Separation Crisis.
