For more than a century, AJC has been the leading global Jewish advocacy organization.

With offices across the United States and around the globe, and partnerships with Jewish communities worldwide, AJC works to enhance the well-being of the Jewish people and to advance human rights and democratic values for all.

American Jewish Committee (AJC) is the global advocacy organization for the Jewish people. We work to shape a brighter future by taking on the toughest challenges and pursuing the most transformative opportunities.

Through our unparalleled global network of offices, institutes, and international partnerships, AJC engages with leaders at the highest levels of government and civil society to counter antisemitism, open new doors for Israel, and advance democratic values.


How We Advocate:

1. Global Diplomacy

AJC engages in strategic, long-term diplomacy with government officials in the U.S. and around the world. Each year, AJC meets with senior officials from more than 110 nations.

2. Political Advocacy

Staunchly nonpartisan, AJC works to impact policy in the United States at the local, state, and federal levels. AJC places special emphasis on robust, principled U.S. global leadership as a critical component of our advocacy work.

3. Coalition-Building

AJC builds alliances with other faith and ethnic communities to advance issues of mutual 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 U.S. and abroad.

4. Strategic Communications

AJC leverages its vast global media presence—which includes the largest social media following of any Jewish organization—as an essential part of our advocacy arsenal. We use social media, together with op-eds, expert analysis, and our weekly podcast to help educate the public and shape opinion.
