HIAS+JCORE works to engage the Jewish Community in social action and social justice in the wider society, focusing on race equality and justice for refugees and asylum seekers. Our work draws on Jewish refugee experience, teaching and tradition of Jewish social activism.
Event dates: Monday 9th August 2021 – Friday 31st December 2021
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the 1951 UN Refugee Convention and, closer to home, the 45th anniversary of the 1976 Race Relations act. Both of these were ground-breaking in their time and fundamentally changed the way we relate to race and asylum issues.
Another anniversary we are celebrating this year is the 45th anniversary of JCORE. Over the past 45 years we have worked to engage the Jewish community in race and asylum issues through education, dialogue, campaigning and practical support.
