Evacuating our Afghan Allies: the Role of Community Sponsors like JCARR

Thomas Huddleston, who for the past 15 years has been a strategic advisor for the Migration Policy Group, a leading European think tank, will speak at at BEKI Zoom Schmooze. He organized studies and initiatives as part of Europe's 2015/2016 "Refugees Welcome" movement for Syrian refugees; now he is donating his expertise to help the Jewish Community Alliance for Refugee Resettlement (JCARR) recruit and train new volunteers to welcome an Afghan refugee family. Email office@BEKI.org to request the Zoom link.

JCARR is a partnership of six New Haven-area synagogues—including BEKI—and the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven. As a co-sponsor for Integrated Refugee and Immigration Services (IRIS), which is the principal refugee resettlement agency in Connecticut, JCARR helps new refugee and immigrant families resettle in our community.
