Our mission is to advocate for fair, just and compassionate laws, policies, and programs to support immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers.

The Westchester Jewish Coalition for Immigration envisions the United States as a welcoming country with efficient, open-hearted, welcoming immigration policies, so  that immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers can begin new lives in safety and dignity.

MISSION

VISION

Westchester Jewish Coalition for Immigration (WJCI) envisions the United States as a place where refugees and asylum seekers can live in safety with dignity and convenes the Jewish community to act in support of refugees, asylum seekers, and other immigrants by:

 

  1. Engaging in learning and dialogue about issues impacting immigration.

  2. Connecting to volunteer opportunities to support immigrants locally.

  3. Advocating for policies that protect immigrants, both locally and nationally.

 

WJCI offers its 225+ members, who come from nearly 40 of Westchester's synagogues, the opportunity to advocate in support of immigration through advocacy and social action. These critical actions are strengthened through significant partnerships, outreach, and education.
