Online meeting on Immigration Justice Advocacy & COVID-19

UUSJ is having an online conversation on Thursday April 30 at 8:00 PM on the topic of Immigration Justice Advocacy & COVID-19.

We would like to invite you to join UUSJ’s Immigration Justice Task Group to share what is on your heart regarding COVID-19, hear what we’ve been doing, and especially gather your ideas on how UUSJ should focus its Immigration Justice advocacy for a just COVID recovery.

How to make a real impact in NJ during the COVID-19 crisis

No one left out: a COVID-19 response that puts NJ’s most vulnerable residents first. Join STAND CNJ for a virtual gathering on understanding the advocacy needed to make an impact on NJ’s next steps in supporting its communities throughout the state.

Speakers:

  • Dena Mottola Jaborska, Associate Director, New Jersey Citizen Action will highlight how our advocacy efforts can make an impact on current issues, such as unemployment, paid leave, and healthcare to close the gaps and protect NJ residents.
  • Brandon J. McKoy, President, New Jersey Policy Perspective will highlight the important policy and budgetary advocacy needed to develop the state’s legislation and resources necessary to tackle our newest challenge.

Join us in learning more on what NJ activists should understand about how the state can provide resources and what we can all do to make sure necessary services are provided for people in our state.
In collaboration with our network of coalitions, we can make a difference.
