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 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.
