Who We Are
AJC is the leading global Jewish advocacy organization, with unparalleled access to government officials, diplomats, and other world leaders. Through these relationships and our international presence, AJC is able to impact opinion and policy on the issues that matter most: combating rising anti-Semitism and extremism, defending Israel’s place in the world, and safeguarding the rights and freedoms of all people.
There are 193 UN member states. Over the past year, AJC has held high-level meetings with the top government officials of more than half of them. Through strategic, long-term diplomacy that leverages these relationships, AJC is able to affect policy on the critical issues of our time.
AJC advocates with members of Congress, the U.S. Administration, and state and local elected officials to promote domestic policies and pass legislation that support our global agenda.
AJC builds alliances among diverse ethnic and religious groups to advance issues of common concern. Fundamental to our mission is the belief that the well-being of the Jewish community is linked to that of other faith and ethnic groups in the United States and around the world.
A global media presence allows AJC to amplify our advocacy efforts. Through television interviews, press releases, and op-eds, AJC experts influence the public debate on our top priorities. We use social media as a powerful advocacy tool to spread our message and gain international support for initiatives.
AJC is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. AJC neither supports nor opposes candidates for elective office.
