Dear Candidates: We Care About Economic Justice, Too
All of the major presidential candidates are now barnstorming the country, talking to voters about their top priorities.
Yet despite the fact that poll after poll shows that economic justice is at the top of the list of Jewish voters’ concerns, candidates still focus nearly exclusively on foreign policy every time we hear from them.
So, this election cycle we’re coming together to urge the candidates to address the Jewish community on the issues we care most about. If enough of us take action, we can expand the conversation and stop the pandering.
With economic inequality nearing pre-Great Depression levels, our tradition’s commitment to a just and fair economy has never been more critical.
Join us and tell the 2016 candidates that the Jewish community wants to hear their vision for tackling economic inequality.

Sign the Petition to the 2016 Presidential Candidates:
The Jewish community wants action on economic inequality.
Jewish tradition is steeped in the language of economic justice, and generations of American Jews have fought to expand the rights of workers. We urge you — the 2016 presidential candidates — to share with us your plans for tackling the moral crisis of economic inequality.
