Whether we call them concentration camps, mass detention centers, or cages for children, they are a moral abomination. The real question is not what we call these mass detention sites growing all over the country, the question is: what is every government official and citizen doing to stop this evil? Our government is scapegoating, demonizing, and terrorizing immigrants. These policies echo the worst of Jewish history and the worst of American history. Jewish Americans overwhelmingly reject the hateful, anti-immigrant policies being perpetrated by the very people pretending to be offended on our behalf. We demand that Congress take immediate action to stop this ongoing campaign of cruelty towards immigrants by defunding the agencies that carry it out.”

– Stosh Cotler, CEO of Bend the Arc: Jewish Action

The cruel and unjustifiable actions of ICE in our homes and along the border cannot be tolerated. JUFJ has fought alongside immigrants in DC and Maryland to protect their rights as members of our communities and as human beings, from the right to a public education and a legal defense to the basic protections of safety and shelter.

There are many ways you can take action against the barbaric cruelty of our own government. We are collecting them here for you to share. If there are more actions and events that we should list, please email sam@jufj.org. List updated July 16 at 5:00 PM.
