In May 2019, compelled by our Jewish values, we will travel to the American Southwest, where a humanitarian crisis is unfolding at our borders.
Our members will visit Arizona border towns and cross into Mexico to meet immigrants and detainees, hear their stories, and offer support, such as by bringing them comfort items or attending their bond hearings to help ensure their fair treatment by the courts. We'll also learn from and volunteer with immigrant and refugee agencies and organizations. And we will trace the journey migrants take through the desert – providing aid and resources to a water station that supports them along the way.
