Joshua Speaks in Brooklyn

February 1, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

PLEASE REGISTER IN ADVANCE!

Joshua Rubin will be the featured dinner speaker at Congregation Beth Elohim on Friday, Feb. 1st at 8pm.  Josh recently returned from 3 months of bearing witness outside the nation’s largest child detention center in Tornillo near the El Paso, Texas border. This secretive jail-like desert facility housed 2,800 teens age 13-17. It recently closed, due in part to public outcry—but other such child detention centers, equally lacking in transparency, remain open. Josh will discuss his journey, America’s ongoing crises of family separation and the detention of migrant and asylum-seeking children—and what average citizens like us can do about it.
