Friday, March 12, 2021 28 Adar 5781

6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for our March Shabbat Salon@Home! This month's presenter will be Andrew Geibel, Policy Cousel at HIAS.


Andrew Geibel joined HIAS last year as Policy Counsel specializing on asylum issues. He is the author of HIAS's "Roadmap to Recovery: A Path Forward after the Remain in Mexico Program" report, which details the steps needed to end the program that has forced tens of thousands of asylum seekers to stay in some of the most dangerous areas of Mexico.

Andrew previously lived abroad in Italy where he volunteered at Joel Nafuma Refugee Center, working on special projects and leading public presentations about the center and the Italian refugee crisis. He also volunteered on the Greek island of Chious where he worked directly with asylum. Additionally, he performed contract work for the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) in Geneva and Kigali. Prior to living abroad, he worked for six years for Senator Menendez as a member of the Senator's immigration team.
