What Is The Jewish Vote?

The Jewish Vote is a vote to…

    • Protect Immigrants: We are electing grassroots leaders who will protect immigrants and refugees: #TheJewishVote is a vote against ICE and a vote to #EndFamilySeparation and win #FreedomForImmigrants.

 

    • Protect our Democracy: We are electing grassroots leaders who will protect our civil liberties and democratic rights. Voting in New York is notoriously difficult—to the benefit of the Albany establishment. #TheJewishVote is a vote against Albany corruption and a vote for true democracy!

 

    • Win Healthcare & Homecare for All: We are electing grassroots leaders who will fight for healthcare and homecare for all of us! Too many New Yorkers STILL don’t have access to healthcare and long-term care in their homes and communities. #TheJewishVote is a vote for a caring economy in which women, seniors, people with disabilities, caregivers, and all of us are treated with dignity and respect.

 

    • Fight for Housing Justice: We are electing grassroots leaders who will fight for affordable housing. We see people displaced from their homes every day due to rising rents and tax breaks for real estate developers. #TheJewishVote is a vote to end homelessness and protect tenants!

 

    • Fight for Criminal Justice Reform: We are electing grassroots leaders who will hold the police accountable and dismantle unjust systems of criminalization and mass incarceration. #TheJewishVote is a vote to end cash bail, legalize marijuana, ensure the right to a speedy trial, and increase transparency in the criminal justice system. We cannot rest until every person on the streets of New York is treated with the dignity that the Torah tells us is our birthright.

 

    • Resist the politics of hate & fear: We are electing grassroots leaders who will resist politics of hate and fear: #TheJewishVote is a vote for a New York where Jews, Muslims, people of color, immigrants, refugees, and all of us are welcome. Jews are casting our votes for the #DREAMact, the #LibertyAct, and against the #MuslimBan.
