AJC Washington connects our community with AJC’s global advocacy work to enhance the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel. Our access to diplomats, elected officials, and interfaith leaders 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 Washington, D.C., 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.
We serve the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area. Our close proximity to embassies, opinion leaders, and Congress gives our office unparalleled opportunities to advance AJC priorities.
Our young leadership program, AJC ACCESS D.C., empowers Jewish young professionals to advocate for the Jewish people through legislative advocacy on Capitol Hill, dinners with diplomats, and opportunities to pursue interfaith and intergroup relationships. Learn more about ACCESS D.C.

Israel's Elections 2021: Arab Representation in the Jewish and Democratic State
Thursday, March 18, 2021
1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET
In recent years, Arab citizens of Israel have been seeking a more influential seat at the national table. As Israel holds its fourth election in less than two years, Arab voters are being courted by politicians; Jewish-led parties across the political spectrum are adding Arab candidates; new Arab-led parties are forming; and the Joint List, which has represented most Arab voters for years, has splintered.
Who represents the political voice for Arab citizens of Israel? What are the concerns of Arab voters, and what is their vision for political participation in the Jewish and democratic state? Are Jewish voters ready to include Arab citizens in the national political arena.
