February 4, 2021, Washington, DC-National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) applauds the reintroduction of the Dream Act by Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Dick Durbin (D-IL). NCJW Chief Policy Officer Jody Rabhan released the following statement: 

As an organization that works to improve the lives of women, children, and families, National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is encouraged to see a bipartisan solution to give Dreamers (young immigrants brought to the United States as children) a path to citizenship. We call on Congress to swiftly pass this important legislation, and are grateful to the tireless advocacy and leadership of Dreamers who have worked to get Congress to this point.” 

National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is a grassroots organization of 180,000 volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. Inspired by Jewish values, NCJW strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms. Through a program of education, community service, and advocacy, our advocates across the country create lasting social change on our key issues of the federal courts; reproductive health, rights, and justice, and voter engagement. More information on Facebook and on Twitter at @NCJW.
