Eleven members of the Jewish Latino Teen Coalition, a program founded by the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona Jewish Community Relations Council and the Office of U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva, visited Washington, D.C., March 31-April 5 to lobby lawmakers on immigration reform. In addition to meeting with a dozen lawmakers or their chiefs of staff, the teens visited the Newseum and met with members of Operation Understanding, a similar D.C.-based group that brings together the Jewish and African American communities. They also met with former Tucsonans Josh Lederman, a journalist who covered the White House for the AP, and Josh Protas, vice president of public policy for MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, who is a former JCRC director. Other meetings included the American Immigration Council and HIAS.
