National NCJW initiatives include:
Federal court decisions impact every aspect of our lives. NCJW’s efforts are focused on making sure that court vacancies are filled in a timely manner by nominees who are committed to constitutional values.
Promote the Vote, Protect the Vote
To promote civic engagement, NCJW works to ensure that all eligible voters are able to vote and that every vote is counted. We oppose efforts to curb voting rights with laws that make requirements for voting unnecessarily burdensome.
Sex trafficking of women and children is a disturbing reality at home in the United States, and it’s growing. NCJW aims to expose and address this modern-day slavery through a powerful program of public awareness, education, and advocacy.
NCJW’s campaign against domestic violence is grounded in the understanding that economic security is critical to women’s safety. NCJW champions economic independence for women as a way to help eliminate domestic violence and create a more stable financial foundation for all families.
Reproductive Justice Initiative
NCJW envisions a day when each person will have the power to make their own informed decisions about their body, sexuality, and future regardless of race, income, sexual orientation, immigration status, or other factors. Our reproductive justic initiative is a strong Jewish voice for health equity and reproductive freedom.
NCJW’s Campaign for Contraceptive Access aims to secure and protect access to contraceptive information and options. The campaign targets pharmacy refusals, comprehensive sexuality education, emergency contraception, affordable contraception, and young women’s access.
