We live in a moment where Jews are facing a sharp rise in antisemitism. This intensifying hate is a profound risk to the Jewish community.

Through Disrupt Antisemitism, American Jewish Committee (AJC) is empowering young American Jews to develop bold ideas to take on antisemitism locally, nationally, or virtually.

AJC invites young American Jews to participate in our incubator. Winning ideas will be selected by a committee of young leaders and innovators from AJC and the business and tech industries.

Winning submissions will receive up to $10,000 in seed funding from AJC, along with access to AJC expertise and leaders in the fields of advocacy, finance, and tech.

Are you ready to disrupt antisemitism?

 

Here’s what you need to know:

AJC will accept applications from Monday, August 16, 2021 to Monday, September 27, 2021.

Criteria:

  • An idea, project, or organization created by and for young leaders.
  • Projects or organizations with demonstrable impact in fighting antisemitism.
  • New, innovative ideas that have not been attempted or have been recently-launched.
  • Applicants must be citizens or legal residents of the United States.

Please be aware the application form requires a google account to submit. If you do not have a google account or experience technical difficulties, please email disruptantisemitism@ajc.org.

 

All proposals must be non-partisan. No consideration will be given to proposals which focus on a single political party. Although we prefer proposals that reach across existing partisan lines, we will give full consideration to proposals the target significant demographic groups without regard to political affiliation, even though there will be a disproportionate focus on people who tend to vote for the same party. In addition, each proposal must acknowledge that the grantee will speak only in his or her own name, and not in the name of AJC. No representation will be made that AJC endorses a particular position funded by the grant.
