WJCI advocates for policies that transform immigrants’ lives. We stand up for human rights and social justice around the major issues facing immigrants today, including citizenship, food insecurity, healthcare, housing, and employment.
What is Advocacy Week?
WJCI, in partnership with HIAS, advocates for refugees in our communities by participating in Advocacy Week, which occurs both during the spring and the month of August for the Congressional recess. During Advocacy Week, we meet with our representatives to advocate for the rights of refugees, asylum seekers, and all immigrants in our community and throughout the world.
During Advocacy Week Spring 2023, our community met with key members of the Senate and Congress, including U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer and Congressmen Adriano Espaillat, Mike Lawler, and Jamaal Bowman. Stay tuned for future advocacy weeks and information about how to get involved!
