JAC Statement on the Shooting in Las Vegas

Our condolences to the families and victims whose lives are shattered forever. The tragedy that unfolded in Las Vegas early this morning is indescribable. It's a scene -- senseless violence aimed at innocent victims -- that has played out too often throughout America. 

There will undoubtedly be an outpouring of prayers and comfort. But what our country desperately needs is an outpouring of action to keep guns away from dangerous individuals, ban assault weapons, and tighten background checks. 

JAC Statement on the Confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court

Today the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. This was accomplished by changing the rules of the Senate to permit a simple majority (51 votes) to decide.

JACPAC is deeply disappointed by this confirmation. We say "Elections Have Consequences." The impact of this confirmation will be felt for generations.


What Can You Do?

JAC Statement on Donald Trump's Comments About Muslims on 12/2015

JAC strongly condemns the hateful comments made by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

We may differ on ideas and policies, but we must be united - Republicans and Democrats - to ensuring religious freedoms for all. Racial and religious bigotry has absolutely no place in our political arena and only serves to weaken the fabric of our country.

JAC Statement on the Iran Nuclear Deal 7-2015

At JAC, we are united with the Jewish community in our fervent desire to see the threat from a nuclear-Iran eliminated through diplomatic means. The U.S. has always had a strong commitment to Israel's security, a goal that has always united the two countries. As Congress reviews the details of the deal, it is important they remain committed to maintaining a strong U.S.-Israel relationship, free from partisanship and that discussions are "rigorous and fact based."

Statement on the Jerusalem Synagogue Attacks

JAC is appalled by the terrorist attacks at a Jerusalem synagogue that claimed the lives of five people -- including three Americans and one Canadian, who held Israeli citizenship -- and left other victims wounded during morning services. We stand with President Obama and the Administration condemning this violence in the strongest manner. We are united with Israel and Canada in our grief. Our hearts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those killed and injured. May their memory be a blessing.

These violent attacks will never advance the cause of peace, nor will they stop those dedicated to reaching it.

Our Health Is At Stake

Women's Health Issues Have No Place in Budget Negotiations

JAC thanks you for your continued support of women's health choices.
 
The House passed a bill on Saturday, 231-192, to delay implementing much of the Affordable Care Act for a year. The measure also allowed employers and insurers to opt out of providing health care services they find morally or religiously objectionable, including contraception, abortion, screenings for cervical cancer, and sexually transmitted infections.
 
JAC strongly objects to this discriminatory measure, which specifically targets women and women's health. Simply put, a vote for this bill was a vote against women.
 
On behalf of the JAC national membership, a letter was sent to those Representatives who voted against the measure thanking them for supporting women's reproductive rights during this tumultuous time.
