AJC Washington 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 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.
Our high school education and advocacy program, AJC Leaders for Tomorrow, empowers teens to become advocates for Israel and the Jewish people through hands-on leadership workshops, meetings with diplomats and congressional representatives, and advocacy skill-building sessions.
