Our friends at the Bergen County Sanctuary Committee are holding a benefit dinner to support their work on Saturday, March 7th, 2015, at 6:00 p.m. at the Ethical Culture Society of Bergen County, 687 Larch Avenue, Teaneck, NJ 07666. The speaker is Natalie J. Kraner, Esq., Pro Bono Counsel in the Lowenstein Center for the Public Interest. Her topic is Asylum for Unaccompanied Minors.
The dinner is free but tax deductible donations will be appreciated.
The Bergen County Sanctuary Committee, a 501(c)3 organization, provides humanitarian support and advocacy for political asylum seekers and asylees. They have assisted many people who have been released with approval for asylum, but with no resources. The recent influx of unaccompanied minors has presented a new challenge for them, as it has for all organizations trying to help undocumented people from around the world.
Call 201-836-5187 for more information and to make reservations.
