Government Relations

JCRC advocates for an inclusive agenda highlighting the innovative work of our agencies. We advance our community’s shared priorities by securing public funding and advocating for broad-ranging policy change.

Over the past year, JCRC was successful in leading and supporting advocacy efforts for disability inclusion, elderly benefits, minimum wage increases, gun violence prevention, and many other important issues facing our Commonwealth.

Our advocacy efforts leverage and support private philanthropy in areas such as:
• Services and inclusion for people with disabilities
• Individual and family economic stability and opportunity
• Community and home based senior support services
• Policies and programs to strengthen the fabric of our communities
and the vitality of the safety net

In addition, JCRC periodically hosts conversations with public and political leaders on various topics of interest and importance to the organized Jewish community.
