Please consider making a generous donation to the Jewish Community Center of Krakow (Poland). Executive Director Jonathan Ornstein has been at the Poland-Ukraine border helping coordinate humanitarian efforts. "Each day the refugees who arrive in Krakow require more and more support. They are coming from war-torn cities and small, impoverished villages scattered across the Ukrainian countryside. JCC Krakow is working around the clock to welcome these refugees to our city and help them feel some sense of normalcy and security."
When donating, please write “Ukraine” in the comment box.

This is a well-established national organization. It is the largest voter contact organization in the country. Its mission: Get Democrats to vote.
Founded in 2015 to fill a void in Democratic strategy—the lack of an organization 100% focused on targeted field conversations in highly competitive House and Senate races, instead of pouring
money into ineffective TV ads. Supports grassroots candidates who run in tough races in battleground states. Take a look at the PTP website and consider supporting their ongoing efforts. Very impressive.

Help create a vibrant network of informed, trained and motivated organizations and individuals issuing the clarion call for policymakers to enact legislation and regulation to “bend the arc” in the direction of universal health care.
