About A More Perfect Union:

The Jewish Partnership for Democracy launched in early 2022 to mobilize the American Jewish community to protect and strengthen American democracy. A More Perfect Union’s initial work focuses on two priorities:

  1. In the short-term (2022-2026), we will work to protect electoral democracy by strengthening the systems that ensure free and fair elections and building greater trust and confidence in the integrity of America’s electoral process.
  2. In the medium-term (2023 and beyond), we will work to strengthen American democratic culture to nourish a shared sense of civic commitment, less toxic polarization, and reasoned and reasonable policy deliberations.
