Who We Are
Committed to Democracy and Justice

Who We Are

Jews United for Democracy and Justice (JUDJ) is a broad, nonsectarian, non-partisan cross-section of American Jews who stand together asserting a Jewish voice to safeguard the principles and foundation of our constitutional democracy, as is consistent with our core values. JUDJ was founded in the wake of the 2017 executive orders on immigration and asylum seekers as well as other threats to racial and religious tolerance, equal treatment for all in our judicial and law enforcement systems, a free and fair press, human dignity, and long-held norms of decency and civil society. While administrations have changed, we continue to face dangers posed by extremism, polarization, gerrymandering and weakening of our governmental institutions. We educate and keep people up-to-date on the major issues of our day as we collectively work toward rebuilding our constitutional democracy.
What We Do
Preserving the Nation's Democratic Values

What We Do

JUDJ is committed to ensuring that threats posed to our norms, values and constitutional protections do not become normalized. JUDJ provides a forum to educate the public about violations committed against the constitution to foster an educated, informed and mobilized public.

JUDJ brings people together within and outside the Jewish community to discuss issues threatening our democracy. We engage Jewish leaders, elected officials, journalists, thought leaders, and community stakeholders to share insights and have meaningful discussions about the state of affairs. Ultimately, we aspire to “walk the walk” of our Jewish values by working towards a common goal of preserving this nation’s democratic values.
