Westchester Jewish Coalition for Immigration (WJCI) is a non-partisan organization that envisions the United States as a place where refugees, asylum seekers, and other immigrants can live in safety with dignity. We convene both the Jewish and interfaith communities to act in support of immigration by:
Connecting with key partners to mobilize our community around social action initiatives, indirect service, and volunteer opportunities that support local immigrants and refugees

Increasing our network to mobilize Westchester’s Jewish community around specific initiatives that lead to justice and opportunity for all immigrant groups.
