JCUA is building a team in Highland Park, Highwood, Deerfield, Northbrook, and surrounding areas to bring a Jewish voice to important state-level immigration policies that their coalition partners in the Campaign for a Welcoming IL are working to pass this year. Our hope is to have a committed core team that will meet regularly with our state legislators (Julie Morrison, Bob Morgan, and Jonathan Carroll), both in-district and in Springfield, to work on getting our 2019 legislative platform passed. This team will also coordinate efforts to bring in the broader Jewish community’s support when strategic, through postcard campaigns, phone banks, and other actions.
On March 10th, at Steve Keen’s home in Highland Park, we’ll be meeting as a team with Rep. Bob Morgan to talk about the district and the community we want to build there, as well as about our 2019 bills. We will then take what we learn in that meeting to begin to draft an arc of actions from March – May for this North Suburban Organizing Team. Join us! You can RSVP here (address sent upon RSVP), and reach out to Anna Rubin (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
