We support organizations which fight for immigrants, racial justice, reproductive rights and more to protect and expand fairness, equity and freedom through community engagement, building power, policy advocacy, and impact.

Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner.
Effects that scientists had predicted in the past would result from global climate change are now occurring: loss of sea ice, accelerated sea level rise and longer, more intense heat waves.
Environmentalists say that there are more and more frequent sharp changes in weather, storm winds, hurricanes, tornadoes, and abnormally high and abnormally low temperatures. According to experts, the cause of these phenomena is the global climate change.

We support the mobilization of a full range of resources that strengthen the ability of communities to withstand disasters and recover equitably when they occur. Let’s create a world where the impact of disasters is minimized by thoughtful, equitable and responsible recovery for all.
Education can put people on a path towards good health, empowerment and employment. It can help to build more peaceful societies. And the benefits of girls’ education extends to their own children who are often healthier and more educated because their mothers went to school.
Evidence shows that, on average, each additional year of education boosts a person’s income by 10% and increases a country’s GDP by 18%. Some researchers estimate that if every child learned to read, around 170 million fewer people would live in poverty.
Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, life-saving laws have been thwarted by the gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives. But something is changing.
Nearly six million mayors, moms, teachers, survivors, gun owners, students, and everyday Americans have come together to make their own communities safer. Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your neighborhood. By introducing evidence-based solutions in every town, we can end gun violence.
Evidence shows that as indicators for women and girls’ well-being improve, economies will grow, poverty rates will decline, and the environment will benefit.
However, women and girls are constrained by socio-cultural, structural and policy barriers that impede their rights.
We invest in organizations and programs to advance meaningful social, cultural and economic change in the lives of women.
We support organizations that are changing communities through prevention, prenatal care, disease control, vaccinations, mobile education and through understanding their health issues.
George Washington, First US President
We stand for a world in which refugees find welcome, safety, and freedom. We support organizations that rescue people whose lives are in danger for being who they are. They protect the most vulnerable refugees, helping them build new lives and reuniting them with their families in safety and freedom. They advocate for the protection of refugees and assure that displaced people are treated with the dignity they deserve.
We support a path to two states for Israelis and Palestinians. We support pro-Israel, pro-peace efforts to promote US policies that embody our deeply held Jewish and democratic values and that help secure the State of Israel as a democratic homeland for the Jewish people. We believe that only a negotiated resolution agreed to by Israelis and Palestinians can meet the legitimate needs and national aspirations of both peoples.
Working in the American political system, in the Jewish community and with others with whom we share core values, we advocate for diplomacy-first American leadership and policies that advance justice, equality, peace, and democracy in Israel, in the wider region and in the United States as well.
