Third Annual Business Trends Forum: “From Refusniks to Dreamers – Past, Present, and Future of the American Immigration Policy”
When: Thursday, June 20, 2013
Time: 3:30 – 9:00 PM
Where: The National Museum of the American Jewish History
Address: 101 South Independence Mall East, Philadelphia, PA 19106
This year’s RSPN Forum draws parallels between the Refusnik movement (which paved the way for Soviet Jews in the 1970s through the 1990s to escape religious persecution and find new economic, political, and social opportunities in America) and the worldwide immigration to the United States today, seeking the same opportunities that many Soviet Jews sought in the 70s, 80s and 90s, but facing a continuous struggle for equality, recognition, and basic Civil Rights.
