AJC Seattle connects our community with American Jewish Committee’s global advocacy work to enhance the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel. Our access to diplomats, elected officials, and interfaith leaders at the local level advances AJC’s broader global priorities: combating antisemitism, promoting Israel’s place in the world, and countering the spread of radicalism and extremism.
Our impact extends well beyond the Seattle community, helping AJC achieve tangible results in the form of government policies, formidable alliances, and hard-hitting legislation that make our world safer and more secure.

Seattle Mayoral Candidate Forum on Issues of Concern to the Jewish Community
Please join American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Family Service (JFS), StandWithUs Northwest, Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle and its Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) as we host a conversation with Seattle mayoral candidates, Lorena González and Bruce Harrell. We will discuss issues of concern to the Greater Seattle Jewish community, including rising antisemitism, anti-Zionism, hate crimes and extremism in our region, the effects of proposed bills at the Seattle City Council on our community and more. Both candidates will be given the opportunity to present their views and vision as Seattle’s next mayor, answer questions from the hosting organizations as well as submissions from community members. This event will be moderated by Regina Sassoon Friedland, Regional Director, AJC Seattle.
