Support J Street’s Grassroots Partners

J Street values long-term, grassroots organizing and its role in turning out voters and helping transform elections. This cycle, we’re pleased to announce that J Street members can directly support centralized organizing efforts in Arizona and Georgia through our partners for the 2022 election cycle.

There are hundreds of organizing groups doing impactful work across the country – to ensure the most effective use of your contributions, we’ve opted to partner with the centralized, statewide organizing hubs, who coordinate resources across the state and other partner organizations.

The Georgia Alliance for Progress

 

The Georgia Alliance for Progress is the only organization in Georgia purposed to align multiple political and philanthropic vehicles to advance our state’s progressive movement. Our mission is to build a permanent, powerful, strategic and inclusive progressive movement in Georgia supported by a network of committed donors. We collectively envision a Georgia that is healthy and just, with shared economic success and security, access to high-quality public education and a democracy that works for all.

In the five years since our launch, we have invested more than $30 million dollars into Georgia’s political and civic future. In 2020, we built capacity in Georgia’s progressive ecosystem through $11M in grants to partner organizations, 82% of which are led by people of color.” View Georgia Alliance’s Annual Report here.
