National Council of Jewish Women is committed to creating a world where all people, regardless of race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, or immigration status, have the right to build their families and live their lives with dignity. Our Jewish experience tells us that our reproductive freedoms are integrally bound to our religious liberty; we are committed to advancing the goals of reproductive justice so that every person can make their own moral and faith-informed decisions about their body, health, and family.
NCJW is working to pass legislation to modernize our election systems and make it easier to register and cast a ballot. NCJW has worked to expand voting rights, drive voter turnout, educate on the issues, and engage advocates. Our work continues today, with a renewed focus on developing grassroots networks and leaders to build power in their communities. Our ultimate goal? That every eligible voter is able to register to vote, cast a ballot, and engage in all levels of government in a deep and meaningful way.
We have been a leading voice in the progressive community’s fight to ensure a fair and independent judiciary with an unwavering commitment to constitutional rights. Our powerful grassroots network educates our communities about the importance of the federal judiciary, and mobilizes and advocates to ensure that court vacancies are filled by nominees who are committed to constitutional values.
