Who We Are
The Jewish Public Affairs Committee of California (JPAC) is the largest single-state coalition of Jewish organizations in the nation. Comprised of local Jewish Federations, Jewish Community Relations Councils, Jewish Family Service agencies, and other Jewish community organizations we advocate for traditional community concerns and broadly shared values that affect the citizens of California.
JPAC has lobbied the State Legislature on many issues, including Social Services, Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, Immigration and Immigrants’ Rights, Gun Violence Prevention, Human Trafficking, Anti-Poverty and Affordable Housing. Our members collectively serve over 1 million Californians each year.
What We Do
JPAC has helped to galvanize local and state-wide support for countless initiatives of importance to our members. Our work has resulted in many wins for California and the California Jewish community.
Since 2014, JPAC has successfully secured over $126 million in the State budget that directly impacts our members and their communities.
Presence in Sacramento
JPAC has deep relationships with elected officials across the State, including the California Legislative Jewish Caucus and other ethnic Caucuses, and continuously cultivates those relationships through our annual Advocacy Day program and via our Sacramento-based lobbyist.
JPAC is non-partisan and a registered 501 (c) 4. We appreciate your support!
