Justice

Our response to injustice calls us to personal and social transformation

We see spirituality and justice as one and commit ourselves to live this out in all our relationships. Systemic evils deprive people of their intrinsic rights and working to help restore these rights is the work of justice.

To Right the Wrong

Thursday, June 11 7-9pm Webinar

A recent series of short films about the Mexico-US border, by independent filmmaker Richard Barber, hosted by Congregation Beth Elohim, Brooklyn and the CBE Refugee Task Force.  The films, made between summer, 2018 and February, 2020, document people responding to immigration policies designed to deter and punish migrants seeking asylum at the Southern border: some by bearing witness, others by volunteering humanitarian assistance and providing legal aid.  A panel discussion and audience Q&A with the filmmaker and three immigration activists will follow. Even as avenues to asylum for immigrants and refugees are closed, families are locked up in dangerous conditions and separated, children are deported alone, you can find ways to help.   PLEASE REGISTER here
