$50,000 in 24 Hours for Candidates with the Courage of Their Convictions

March 26th, 2010

When the news broke of a JStreetPAC-endorsed candidate cracking under pressure from fear-mongering attacks and renouncing our endorsement, JStreetPAC leapt into action. We started a campaign to raise funds for pro-Israel, pro-peace candidates who have the courage to stand by their convictions, setting what we thought was an ambitious goal of $15,000. But JStreetPAC supporters smashed our original goal of $15,000 in a matter of hours.  And then, we surpassed $50,000 in under 24 hours from when we launched the campaign! Click here to keep the momentum going - contribute to pro-Israel, pro-peace candidates with the courage of their convictions to stand for real peace and security for Israel and the Middle East. This is how we fight the fear-based political dynamic on Israel in this country - and show that real support exists from our community for  candidates willing to stand up for what they believe.
