WASHINGTON, DC

JUFJ’s DC team works in coalition with partners to build power and push for a District where everyone has what they need to live and thrive. We mobilize the Jewish community to win local campaigns for economic justice and racial equity. Our current campaigns include a variety of housing security and economic justice issues, from fair treatment for street vendors to preventing chronic homelessness to higher pay for early childhood educators.

We are a member organization of many coalitions including the Under 3 DC Coalition, the Fair Budget Coalition, the Way Home Campaign, and Hands Off DC.
