North American Immigrant Justice Campaign

This campaign seeks to promote permanent protection, dignity and respect for all 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the USA. Congregations engage with this campaign through four strategic approaches: advocacy, deportation defense, material/legal/financial support and hosting. 

North American Immigrant Justice Campaign

Advocacy

Using the tools of nonpartisan civic engagement to build our power and pursue winnable policy changes on the local, state and federal levels will better protect undocumented immigrants.

Deportation Defense

Participating meaningfully in public campaigns to protect individuals from deportation will preserve family unity and provide undocumented immigrants with the support and protection they need to remain safe within the United States.

Material, Financial & Legal Support

Helping undocumented immigrants meet their immediate needs by providing financial support, clothing, food, legal expertise, know your rights trainings and other goods or services can help tremendously with day-to-day needs of those within our communities who have little access to these things otherwise.

Housing

Providing temporary shelter for undocumented immigrants immediately facing deportation not only resonates deeply with our Jewish values and history, but also provides stability to those who are the most vulnerable to deportation.

Share Your Work

We know our communities are engaged in meaningful work that will strengthen partnerships across lines of differences and among the Reform Jewish communities. Tell us what you are doing in your community so that we can better support and lift up your work!

Resources and Text Studies

We face a moral imperative to actively seek immigrant justice as Jews and as Americans. Learn more about Immigrant Justice as a Jewish value and access resources for meaningful congregational engagement.
