JPAC Capitol Summit
May 14 - May 15, 2024
HIAS and our four California resettlement partners (JFCS-East Bay, JFS Silicon Valley, JFCS-Long Beach/OC, and JFS San Diego) are active members of the Jewish Public Affairs Committee of California (JPAC), which is the country’s oldest and largest statewide coalition of Jewish social service and public affairs agencies.
JPAC Capitol Summit provides an empowering opportunity for hundreds of California’s Jewish community members and allies to learn, network, and advocate for our community’s priorities.
One significant bill we will lobby for is SB 85, which would double the length of case management for refugees in California from three to six months!
During this two-day gathering, you will:
- Hear from some of the state’s most powerful lawmakers and activists;
- Practice and participate in direct advocacy;
- And access exclusive networking opportunities with elected officials, Jewish organizational leaders, and lay leaders from across California.
