JStreetLEAD is a group of young professionals and alumni who comprise the next generation of pro-Israel, pro-peace activists and leaders. LEAD stands for Learn, Educate, Advocate and Develop. This program aims to grow support for J Street among young professionals so that we are better positioned to make lasting political and communal change toward a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
What have we done so far?
Since that first event we have established growing chapters in New York, Washington DC, Boston MA, Phoenix AZ and Chicago IL. We are expanding in other cities as well. These chapters work with young professionals, local J Street chapters and J Street staff to organize in larger Jewish and political communities.
How do I get involved?
JStreetLEAD is seeking to build chapters across the country. Contact Kalyani Grad-Kaimal at firstname.lastname@example.org to be put in touch with local leaders and learn more about opportunities to be involved.
JStreetLEAD also has leadership positions for alumni and young professionals specifically interested in our communal and political strategies.
