Jewish Insider: Jewish Dems launch new national group

July 21, 2017

Jewish Democrats are set to launch a new political organization, expanding their political activities to focus on the national conversation and ramp up Jewish outreach efforts for the upcoming 2018 elections.

The new group, The Jewish Democratic Council of America, was originally set to launch in October in place of the present National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) and the Jews for Progress PAC. However, President Donald Trump’s response to the Charlottesville protests compelled the founders of the JDCA to accelerate the timeline, the organization said in a news release on Sunday.
