This evening I attended a meeting, Immigrants and Refugees: A Jewish Call-to-Action. There was standing room only. People listened intently as a panel of elected officials, rabbis and thought leaders explained why it is imperative that we advocate for immigrants and refugees. It was incredibly moving to be in that room with so many caring people.
We were given suggestions for helpful resources. Three that I looked at this evening were: the ACLU website, the San Diego Anti-Defamation website, and perhaps best of all, a pamphlet, the Indivisible Guide. I see now how to make my calls and letters to elected representatives more effective.
I sketched during the meeting in a black sketchbook with a white gel pen. Later at home I painted this sketch with gouache and then made adjustments with Procreate.
