The District needs strong, ethical leaders who will stand for equality and justice, and work for the people of our city. And with DC’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 who to vote for, and to make it clear to candidates that we expect them to fight for us.
In November, DC voters will cast ballots for DC Council. These are the leaders who will shape the future of our city. Will the District be a place where everyone can live, work, and thrive? Or will it be an enclave where only a lucky few can afford to live, pricing out longtime, hardworking residents?
