About Last Night

What an election season this has been already — and it’s not over yet. As Jews, we know that every vote is sacred, just as every person is sacred. Every single one of us is entitled to a say in our democracy. We’re going to keep working to make sure every vote is counted, but here’s what we know already:

What an Election!

What an election. For DC, for Maryland, and for the JUFJ Campaign Fund, there were amazing, inspiring victories — and a few devastating and infuriating losses. Now that the dust is starting to settle, I wanted to share a few reflections with you.

Resistance is Local: If I am not for myself, who will be for me?

November 6 is important for the entire country, and we need folks on the ground in DC. Without local organizing, all the work we do for paid family leave, higher wages, quality public education, affordable housing, and so much more will be in jeopardy.

The DC State Board of Education: Why Now?

Why is the JUFJ Campaign Fund endorsing in the races for DC State Board of Education now?

We all know that the Fall is full of Jewish holidays, but did you know that there’s a new one that was just added to the calendar? This year it falls on November 4th through 6th, and it’s called The Festival of Votes.

Mazel Tov to Marc Elrich!

Almost a month after the Primary Election, the Board of Elections has confirmed Marc Elrich will be the Democratic candidate for Montgomery County Executive.

As we shared in our “What’s at Stake” messages in the weeks leading up to the primary, there were some real choices to make in this election.

Marc Elrich’s priorities are Montgomery County voters’ priorities

The general election in Montgomery County this fall is shaping up to be much more interesting – and heavily contested – than usual. Voters are apparently going to have to steel ourselves for months more of dramatically slanted editorializing about Democratic primary winner Marc Elrich.
