Quaker Worship with Special Guest: Ravi Ragbir


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Ravi Ragbir is the leader of the New Sanctuary Coalition of New York City and has been actively fighting deportation. Ragbir came to the U.S. from Trinidad​ in February 1991 on a visitor’s visa. In 1994, he became a lawful permanent resident (green card holder). In 2006, Ragbir was detained and ordered deported by an immigration judge — without a hearing — based on a conviction for fraud. Ragbir is currently working to vacate the conviction based on factual and legal errors in his trial. Ragbir is a nationally recognized leader in the immigrant rights movement. His wife, Amy Gottlieb, serves AFSC as the associate regional director for the Northeast region and will be present with Ravi for this event.
