Our Federation is committed to the well-being of our entire community. We have received calls from concerned community members who feel bound to take action on behalf of the young children impacted by recent events. We have specifically heard from many attorneys looking for meaningful ways to help those impacted by the recent changes to the enforcement of immigration laws.
In response to this concern and these calls, we have created a new initiative, in partnership with Bet Tzedek, for members of our legal community to provide pro bono representation for underage clients in need. If you are an attorney (or know of attorneys who want to offer their time), please contact AShpall@JewishLA.org for more information and volunteer opportunities.
I am continually inspired by our community and I am proud of our leaders who are concerned and passionate about helping those in need. Thank you to our Federation’s Legal Division and those who want to contribute at this time.
Through the power of community, we will create a stronger future for all of our children.
