Energy Security

Laurel Borowick, Mark Reisman and
Daniel Singer, Co-Chairs

Mission - AJC has long believed that the development of a comprehensive U.S. energy program is essential to the economic and social well-being of our country, our national security and the continuance of our broad role in world affairs.  AJC carries out a broad array of initiatives at the National level to effectuate this.  At the local level, this Committee has a two-fold mission:

  1. To advocate and lobby local, state, and federal legislators to promote energy independence from foreign oil and investment in renewable, alternative fuel sources.
  2. To encourage and promote public awareness of the issues involved.
