J Street Convention Washington D.C.
Just over two months from now, thousands of people will come together in Washington, DC for the largest event in J Street’s history at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, 2500 Calvert Street, NW Washington, DC. The event will mark J Street’s 10th anniversary. You won’t want to miss it.
Over the past ten years, the political power you have built as J Street members has made our conference a destination for activists, diplomats and elected officials who share our values and the core belief that responsible US leadership can make this world a better place.
Since his election, President Trump has also demonstrated the consequences of irresponsible American leadership. His administration’s extreme foreign policy seems to have taken aim at precisely the issues most dear to us.
That’s why it’s so important that in 2018, you don’t stay home. If you’ve ever considered showing up for J Street’s National Conference, this is the year to do it.
Show up to hear from candidates and members of Congress and learn how you can make a difference during the vital 2018 election.
Show up to speak out on the issues that matter most to you as we ascend Capitol Hill to meet with Congress on Advocacy Day.
Early bird rates expire Thursday at midnight, so now is the time to register.
I hope to see you in April,

Join thousands of pro-Israel, pro-peace leaders and advocates and make your voice heard in Washington, DC.
Coinciding with J Street’s 10th anniversary, the J Street National Conference will be a vital opportunity to speak out for the kind of Israel and the kind of American politics we need to see. Gathering in Washington, DC, we’ll showcase the weight that we’re mobilizing behind the fight for democracy, tolerance and diplomacy-first policies that advance a better future.
At the conference you will learn about what’s going on in the region from world-class experts and senior political leaders, strategize with innovators and activists working to solve the conflict, connect with other committed supporters from around the country and join us as we send a strong message to Congress. Just six months before the crucial 2018 midterms elections, our conference will be a gathering place for those working towards transformational political change.
We’ll take stock of our movement’s decade of impressive accomplishments and growth, and gear up for the difficult and important work that lies ahead of us.
Americans for Peace Now presents “Vision of Peace Celebration” on May 3.
I have served on the board of directors of this important organization for many years, alongside my good friend Michael Walzer. I can’t think of anyone more deserving than Michael to be recognized by APN. His writings have provided the road map to lead us to a just solution for Israelis and Palestinians, one that is humane, moral and secure for all.
And what a wonderful choice in selecting Lara Friedman to be honored alongside Michael. Lara is one of the most indefatigable, smart, and accomplished people with whom I have worked. While serving as APN’s Director of Policy and Government Relations, her research, reports and policy work were critical to APN’s visibility and success on Capitol Hill and informing and influencing foreign policy.
It will be a fantastic opportunity to share a memorable evening with friends, recognizing the important work and accomplishments of two uniquely thoughtful and dedicated people – Michael Walzer and Lara Friedman.
