Family Separation, Refugees, & Immigrants: Briefings & Interactive Discussion

Monday, June 25, 2018, 12:30pm – 2:00pm EDT

Join us for an urgent briefing and discussion on the crisis involving family separation, refugees, and immigrants. Please note: while this topic is developing rapidly, thousands of children remain separated from their parents and transported far away, with no clear prospect of reunification. Numerous broader and longer-term issues are also involved in this crisis. Please join leading experts and fellow funders for a set of briefings followed by an interactive discussion between funders of where we are, how we got here, and how we can move forward constructively. Scroll down to RSVP, or email [email protected] if you have problems with the RSVP form.

Briefings — 12:30–1:15pm

  • Mark Hetfield, President & CEO, HIAS: History and today
  • Stosh Cotler, CEO, Bend the Arc: Activating activists
  • Rachel Peric, Executive Director, Welcoming America: Changing the tone, changing hearts and minds
  • Rabbi Jill Jacobs, Executive Director, T'ruah: Leading change with religious leaders

Interactive discussion between funders — 1:15–2:00pm
