SAT. FEB 20 | “Advocating for Immigrants and Refugees: In the US, Israel and Around the World,” ft.
Following the 8:00PM performance, join us for a post-show discussion “Advocating for Immigrants and Refugees: In the US, Israel and Around the World,” a discussion featuring Loide Rosa Jorge (Immigration Lawyer) and Rabbi Charles Feinberg (Interfaith Action for Human Rights), moderated by Pamela Pinnock (Co-Chair, Mosaic Theater Outreach Committee)
With years of experience within the immigration legal arena in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, Loide Rosa Jorge brings a wealth of hands on experience, dedication and integrity to her practice. A graduate of American University, Washington College of Law, Miss Jorge states "My mission is to provide my clients with a safe space of honest and thorough legal counsel." This same passion has propelled her towards her objective, to be a respected immigration advocate amongst her clients and peers.
Jorge also brings a personal touch to her practice. Having immigrated to the U.S. as a child with her family, she credits the honest and kind hearted attorneys who helped her family successfully navigate their immigration issues, as one of her inspirations to provide the same quality of service within her practice. Miss Jorge states, “I’ve experienced first hand the stressors of an immigration status in limbo, and nothing can beat the peace of mind that comes from dealing with a good immigration attorney that you know you can trust! I want to provide nothing less for my clients.”
