HIAS Pennsylvania is hosting our 2017 Golden Door Awards: Breaking New Ground to honor those who are breaking new ground in support of immigrants and refugees in the face of adversity.

In light of current events, HIAS Pennsylvania is highlighting the critical work that public figures, private individuals, and immigrants themselves do to support refugees and immigrants in Philadelphia. This year we are proud to honor:

  • Mayor Jim Kenney,for his commitment to keeping Philadelphia a Fourth Amendment City
  • Dr. Sandra Wolf, Executive Director at Drexel Medicine’s Women’s Care Center, for her medical work with women seeking asylum
  • Jazmin Sosa, DACA recipient, for her legal work supporting other immigrants like herself at Sachs Law LLC
