Advocate for Justice in Accordance with Jewish values:
- Bipartisan Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). JoinRAC in urging the reauthorization of this bipartisan act, the U.S.’ most comprehensive resource for survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.
- Support Refugees: RAC and HIAS urge us to promote the Jewish value of welcoming the stranger by asking members of Congress to fund programs upholding the rights of immigrants and asylum seekers.
- Protect Our Democracy: Urge Senators to allocate much more funding (at least $600 million) to states and localities for critical election security needs including prioritizing replacing paperless voting systems.
