Thank you for participating in AJC’s first-ever Virtual Global Forum!

When we first thought of taking the premier global Jewish advocacy gathering online three months ago, we didn’t know what to expect. The past few days have exceeded all our hopes—and then some.

Together we made history, bringing together more than 8,000 people from across the globe—far more than could ever have been contained in even the largest hotel ballroom—to hear from world leaders and issue experts on the most pressing challenges facing America, Israel, the Jewish people, and the world.

75 years after the end of the Holocaust, we gathered in remembrance and conviction, determined to create a safer, less hateful world for Jews and all people. And we drew international attention, making headlines in the world’s leading news outlets, generating robust online discussions, and making our positions known to policymakers who tuned in from around the world to hear what AJC had to say.

In times of uncertainty, we need a strong moral voice with the track record, credibility, reach, and relationships to stand up for our values. That’s AJC.

As AJC CEO David Harris said in his closing remarks yesterday, “In today’s world, I believe that AJC is the most sophisticated vehicle across the United States, around the world, to not only confront the challenges and oppose our enemies but to seize the opportunities and develop new initiatives that will engage the world. We are stronger together. Let AJC become our glue.”

Here are four things you can do right now to build on the momentum of the past five days:
