On Monday afternoon, more than 100 people joined JCUA’s Purim Immigration Action in the Spirit of Esther to call on our legislators to pass permanent solutions for DACA and TPS recipients. SEE PHOTOS HERE! We were joined by our co-sponsors Avodah, National Council of Jewish Women Chicago North Shore, Protected by Faith, Reform IL, Silverstein Base Hillel, the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, and other leaders and members from Chicago’s Jewish and Immigrant communities.
In the spirit of the Purim holiday, speakers urged our federal legislators to reject the fear being spread by the current administration, and act THIS WEEK to save families and communities of immigrants across the country from being torn apart. Why Senators Durbin and Duckworth? Click for more info.
The rally ended with a call to the Jewish community to engage in a Purim week of actions in solidarity with our immigrant siblings. Whether you call on your own legislators to act, join one of the upcoming actions sponsored by our community partners, or fast today in solidarity, there are “lots” of ways you can join the fight for immigrant justice and make this a #PurimofActions.

Join JCUA’s contingent at this Protected by Faith action! Faith leaders and community members will gather to pray, walk and link arms around ICE.
