As American Jews, by urging our government to take action in response to extreme hardship around the world and by increasing awareness in our own communities, we complement the work of AJWS's grantees and play a part in alleviating poverty, hunger and disease throughout the developing world.
Join AJWS in advocating for the passage of the International Violence Against Women Act, which supports innovative, cost-effective programs that have been shown to decrease violence against women and girls. Sign our petition to Congress!
We’re on the verge of something big—major food aid reform that would provide food to millions of hungry people around the world. But we need your help to make it a reality! Please urge your representative to support the Food Aid Reform Act, which would send more of our food aid to the people who really need it.
Make Our Food Aid Dollars Count!
Join us in calling on Congress to strengthen long-term food security by reforming our international food aid programs.
