The current migration crisis suggests that many have forgotten the importance of immigrants to the formation and advancement of our country. In an effort to raise public awareness of the centrality of immigration to America’s history and the advancement of our democracy, the Exodus institute and the Martha’s Vineyard Film Society are teaming up to host the first annual “Pursuing A Dream: Refugee & Migrant Film Festival.”
HIAS will participate in a panel discussion following the screening of the film New Homeland. The panel will be moderated by the film’s director Barbara Koppel, and will feature:
- Mark Hetfield, President and CEO, HIAS
- Cecilia Wang, Deputy Legal Director, National ACLU
- Ed Shapiro, The Shapiro Foundation
