National Initiatives

In the United States, each of NCJW’s initiatives — which focuses on a set of key public policy issues — has been developed to provide both the information and resources necessary to take action at all levels — from town halls to the halls of Congress. By bridging community service and national advocacy, NCJW members are transforming these programs into catalysts for progressive social change.  Click here to learn more.
