What Are Your Priorities For the District?

Jews United For Justice is doing something unprecedented (as far as we know): We’re asking Jewish residents of D.C. about their views on a range of local political issues. We want to know what you, the estimated 25,000 voting age Jews in Washington D.C., care about. We’re bringing these issues to the forefront in the April 1st primary elections.

That’s why we’re asking you to take our 2014 D.C. Issue Survey! The survey asks for your opinion on challenges facing our city, like affordable housing, fighting poverty, and progressive taxes. We’ll bring your responses to the candidates, and make sure this is an issues-based election.

This is a powerful way to show just how progressive our community is. Often we have to fight hard at the D.C. government for progressive change – even when those changes are extremely popular with voters. Now is the time when candidates are most open to hearing our voices, and most likely to respond to the people they hope to represent. That’s why we need you to share your opinion right now.

Thank you!
