2020 Virtual Plenary - A Call to Action: Strategies for Jewish Human Service Agencies to Support and Strengthen Refugees and Asylum Seekers
The global refugee crisis is at an all-time high. Public sentiment for refugees, immigrants and asylum seekers is polarized. And 2020-21 will, one way or another, present dramatic new opportunities for faith-based agencies, like the members of our Network, to think globally while acting locally on this issue. Presenters will offer concrete strategies for our membership, as faith-based human service agencies, to collaborate, mobilize and become engaged as leaders in their communities providing critical education, advocacy and service delivery. Using the City of Dallas as an example, Rabbi Nancy Kasten, community educator, volunteer, activist and Co-Chair, Faith Forward Dallas will frame our conversation by sharing the ways in which the faith community of Dallas has come together to increase their impact as refugee advocates and as service providers. Rabbi Kasten will then facilitate a conversation to highlight the NJHSA response with Mark Hetfield, Elise Herzig, and Cathy Barker.
