As our unified voice is becoming stronger and louder, new opportunities are emerging to regain our progressive space. Hope is the watchword for us in 2020. This is the time for all of us to step up our efforts to strengthen liberal, democratic, and pro-peace forces both in the US and Israel.
The upcoming World Zionist Congress (Jan. 21-Mar. 11, 2020) election is an unparalleled once-in-five-year opportunity for American Jewish progressives to make a direct impact in Israel and have their voices heard.
The Hatikvah slate has 129 powerful leaders (over 50% women and 30% youth) from Partners for Progressive Israel and other progressive organizations along with rabbis, activists, academics and artists. The number of votes the we receive in the WZC elections will determine the influence progressives can have in its leadership and policies determining the flow of a $5 billion budget impacting every aspect of Israeli society and global Jewish life including the Occupation, religious pluralism, gender equality, LGBTQ equality and economic justice over the next 5 years. We are working hard to triple the number of Hatikvah delegates in these elections as compared to 5 years ago.
We need your support to make the most of these initiatives and opportunities. Your end-of-the-year tax-deductible gift of $18, $54, $108, $360, $720 or more will help us move forward confidently and decisively.
Seize the moment of hope and ensure progressive voices are heard loud and clear by making an online tax-deductible gift now.
