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 range from reimagining early childhood education, to advocating for a moral budget, to fighting for stronger protections for renters.

We are a member organization of the Under 3 DC Coalition, the Fair Budget Coalition, the DC Initiative on Racial Equity, and the Reclaim Rent Control Coalition.
