Eddie Chavez Calderon

eddie Chavez CalderonEddie Chavez Calderon is campaign organizer for Arizona Jews for Justice, a pluralistic Jewish group that provides a forum for Jews in Arizona to collaborate and foster social justice within the state. He joined Valley Beit Midrash’s (VBM) social justice group in order to help the thousands of migrant families released from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facilities and has been successful in mobilizing a large response in the Jewish community to deliver care packages of food, clothing, and medical supplies to migrant families. Born in Mexico, he immigrated to the United States at the age of four and, as a DACA recipient, believes he has both a humanitarian responsibility to provide for asylum seekers and a personal need to help them.
