NEW VIDEO from our 2024 Leadership Summit

May 22, 2024

This week, JDCA held our annual 2024 Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. We also shared our newest JDCA video, reminding everyone that in moments like these – less than six months before a critically important election when so much is at stake – JDCA is your home to take action. We are the political home and voice of Jewish voters supporting policies and candidates who share our values and the place to make your voice heard.

Watch and share our video now so that others in your community know that JDCA is a place where they can get involved to defend their values at the ballot box.

During this week’s Leadership Summit, our Board of Directors, New Leadership Council, and many supporters convened with elected officials, diplomats, Democratic strategists, and political and policy thought leaders. We’re grateful to have been joined by Second Gentleman Douglas EmhoffSenate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries, Senators Coons, Casey, Peters, Rosen, Fetterman, and Baldwin, numerous Representatives and so many others. We were honored to present Congresswoman Kathy Manning with JDCA’s Defender of Democracy Award.

One of our core values is democracy, and – with a presidential candidate pledging to be a “dictator on day one” – we all have a role to play in defending it. That’s why we’re doing everything we can to ensure we reelect President Biden, hold the Democratic Senate majority, and take back control of the House. With extremism and antisemitism on the rise and Republicans seeking to divide our community and use Israel and antisemitism as political wedge issues, we are grateful to count you as a part of our movement to push back against divisions. With JDCA, we are united in support of Democrats who share our values. With JDCA, you are home.

We’re now just 167 days from Election Day. And there are two things I hope you will do. First, identify three friends who need to hear more about JDCA.

Next, share our video with them today so they can join our efforts to ensure Democrats win in November.

Thank you for your support.
