What's On Our Mind ...

Women have always marched. When we have been denied our rights and others have tried to stifle our voices, we use our feet and we march.

The French Revolution was sparked by a women-led demonstration in 1789. Women’s rights advocates in the early 20th century successfully deployed marches to win the right to vote. On August 26, 1970 — 50 years after women gained the right to vote in the United States -— 50,000 women marched down Fifth Avenue in New York City for equality. At that time, it was the largest gathering for women’s rights since the suffrage protests.

The Million Mom March in 2000 gained national attention when 750,000 protesters walked the National Mall, accompanied by celebrities and politicians. That March was a call to action to end gun violence.

The Women’s March in January 2017 was the largest single-day protest in the history of the U.S. and the largest global women’s rights protest ever. Most importantly, it sparked a new generation of women activists. Researchers found that participants continued to stay active in their communities and use their social media accounts to persuade others to act.

Tomorrow we march and rally again at the Women’s March of 2021. This event will be a powerful demonstration from coast to coast to support and defend reproductive rights. The March, which is typically held in January, is being held now because we can’t wait. Our reproductive freedom is on the line. Click here for more information.

With the Supreme Court getting ready to hear a case that could roll back Roe v. Wade and states across the country banning abortion without exceptions and others looking to limit access to contraception, we must once again join together as a show of force to protect our rights. The power of political activism can and does effect change.

Make a donation to JAC and help us elect lawmakers that believe reproductive rights are human rights and will fight to protect reproductive freedom.

Elections have consequences.

September 29, 2021 Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) spoke with us yesterday about her commitment to a strong U.S.-Israel relationship, paid family leave, and protections for reproductive rights.

Hassan explained, “We have seen unprecedented attacks on reproductive rights. South Carolina has rendered Roe meaningless. The GOP is going to do whatever it can to take away reproductive rights. That’s going to be on the ballot next year as we not only seek to keep me in the Senate but also my colleagues in the House.”

In his first speech to the United Nations, Naftali Bennett sought to distinguish his government from his confrontational predecessor’s. There’s a new concept taking root in Jerusalem: 'shrinking the conflict.' Although the Israeli-Palestinian conflict cannot be solved imminently, Israel can reduce the impact of the conflict. Foreign Minister Lapid met with Bahrain's king, signing agreements for economic, security, and cultural ties.


A new report finds that Jews face discrimination across the globe, the most of any religious minority. In response to a recent rise in antisemtic incidents, a national Jewish security organization has opened a command center in Chicago to monitor antisemitic threats. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear an appeal on a Holocaust art restitution case.

Lawmakers testified about their own abortions as part of a broader push by Democrats to protect the federal right to the procedure and combat state restrictions. Read about the 'Baby Scoop Era" and how women were forced to carry unwanted pregnancies to term. Women's March protesters will gather in support of reproductive rights on Saturday at more than 650 marches in all 50 states and Washington D.C.


Marjorie Taylor Greene's screaming match over abortion rights showed how "authentic" Christianity remains contentious in this country. Long a powerful force in American politics, evangelical leaders have embraced a new strategy — voter suppression. Additionally, they have set their sights on dismantling the 14th amendment and its promise of equal protection for marginalized people.

The Supreme Court will start its new term with politically divisive cases involving the Second Amendment, religious liberty and abortion. U.S. scientists report more than 20 animal and plant extinctions whose stories hold lessons about a growing global biodiversity crisis. The fight over the debt ceiling seems far off in Washington, but it poses a very real threat to millions of Americans in a precarious economic period.


‘Benghazi multiplied by 10’: Afghanistan becomes a rallying cry for Republicans as they look to bash Biden in the midterms. Colorado's independent redistricting commission passed a new map with four Democratic districts, three Republican ones, and one new, highly competitive 8th District. At a Congressional oversight hearing about the use and abuse of the Supreme Court’s shadow docket, Republicans lied about the partisan nature of the Court.

As Merkel leaves power, here’s where Germany’s leading parties stand on Jewish issues. Impossible Pork is here — but the plant-based meat won’t be certified as kosher. Ukraine’s new Holocaust memorial at Babyn Yar has been funded and promoted mysteriously by Russia.

The Last Word

“With a hostile Supreme Court, extremist state governments are no longer chipping away at constitutional rights — they are bulldozing right through them.”

– Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY)
