Our region needs strong, ethical leaders who will stand for equality and justice, and work for the people of our city. And with DC and Maryland’s crowded elections, it’s hard to sift through the candidates and know who these people are, what they stand for, and whether they will actually follow through on their campaign promises.
That’s why we started the JUFJ Campaign Fund: to help you decide whom to vote for, and to make it clear to candidates that we expect them to fight for us.
Announcing our 2020 Endorsements for DC Council
Janeese Lewis George for Ward 4
Janeese Lewis George will be a champion for working families and everyday residents in Ward 4 and across the District. She has deep roots in the Ward, and is willing to take on entrenched special interests from big businesses to wealthy megadonors. She understands from personal experience that Ward 4 residents need elected leaders who will fight displacement, stand up for workers, and interrupt cycles of violence without relying on broken mass incarceration policies. And she has a plan to win. Lewis George’s bold vision for Ward 4 and DC will make her an incredible addition to the DC Council.
Jordan Grossman for Ward 2
Jordan Grossman fights for progressive values, not whatever is politically expedient. His love for Ward 2 and all of DC, where his mother and grandmother were born and raised, shone through in his interview with JUFJ Campaign Fund’s endorsement team. In a crowded field of challengers to the current Ward 2 Councilmember, Grossman stands out because of his consistent commitment to equity throughout his career, and his plan to use his office to partner with community advocates in the struggle for justice. He’ll speak out for all Ward 2 residents and will be a strong progressive voice on the Council.
