Or Emet:
Understanding Immigration: Justice and
Compassion in Uncertain Times

Friday, April 28, 2017
7:30pm - 9:00pm
LOCATION: Sabes JCC - Beit Knesset

Or Emet will host Michele Garnett McKenzie, deputy director of The Advocates for Human Rights, who will explore the history of U.S. immigration and refugee policy, the impact of the administrative actions, and the call for a just and compassionate response. Recent administrative actions have strategically leveraged fear in an attempt to reshape American demographics, and McKenzie will discuss the impacts this has on justice in the modern world.

A short Humanistic Jewish Sabbath service will precede the program, which is free and open to the public. An Oneg Shabbat reception will follow.
