Take Action to Protect Civil Rights Today!

It is time to act! The Greater Boston Jewish Community is standing with our neighbors under threat. The Safe Communities Act is Massachusetts’ comprehensive answer to the federal government’s aggressive deportation agenda. This legislation would protect the civil rights of all state residents by making sure our tax dollars are not used to help the Trump administration deport immigrant families or to create a Muslim registry.

This effort has been spearheaded by the MA Immigration and Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA), of which JCRC is a member. We support this legislation and will continue to work with our partners to show the nation that Massachusetts stands with our immigrant families!

94 State Senators and Representatives have co-sponsored the bill (see list below)! While the deadline for House sponsorship has passed, it is not too late to keep the pressure on state leaders.
