HIAS partners with CIVIC, an organization committed to ending isolation and abuse in detention centers across the country, for this event. CIVIC has identified asylum seekers who have requested correspondence in English while in detention. At each program, volunteers handwrite letters of compassion and solidarity, and participate in a short learning session that reflects on refugee and asylum issues through a Jewish lens.
Please note that participants must be 18 and over. Upcoming letter writing programs will take place in downtown Washington DC on the dates below. We will notify you of the exact location a week before the program takes place.
