Without Status: Asylum Seekers in Israel During the COVID-19 Crisis

10 February 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Please join us for a webinar co-sponsored by the New Israel Fund and HIAS on February 10 at 2pm Eastern / 11am Pacific as we speak with asylum seekers about their experience trying to find safety and refuge in Israel before and during the COVID-19 pandemic.
For years people seeking asylum in Israel have been living in limbo without status. This always creates precariousness and instability for people and families. But being without status during a pandemic — when access to healthcare and economic relief depend on government programs — is a different level of vulnerability altogether.
Join us as we speak with organizers and experts who are themselves asylum seekers. They will tell us about their experience trying to find safety and refuge in Israel, and advocating for their families and communities before and during the COVID-19 pandemic.
HIAS is the international Jewish humanitarian organization that provides vital services to refugees and asylum seekers in 16 countries. We advocate for the rights of all forcibly displaced people to rebuild their lives and seek to create a world in which they find safety, welcome and opportunity. Learn more about HIAS on their website at www.hias.org.
