Afghan Immigrant Resettlement Sponsorship (Online)

  • Friday, August 27
  • 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
  • Register
  • Program Leader: Ed Shapiro

Learn the latest information on how we will be welcoming new immigrants to the US and the issues in resettling Afghanis.  What are the requirements for sponsoring a family?

The program will be presented by Ed Shapiro, one of our Immigrant Justice leaders who has been working tirelessly with his contacts in the US State Dept. and elsewhere.  With Ed, we hope to have Rachie Lewis from JCRC.  We also will have Andy Freedman who is a co-founder of Miles4Migrants, an organization which collects donated air miles and purchases flights for immigrants to get to the US and/or relocate within the US.

Link coming soon!
