San Diego Jewish Advocacy Fellowship

A group of accomplished young professionals has been selected to participate in the inaugural San Diego Jewish Advocates Fellowship. The cohort of 10 includes attorneys, an engineer, a health care administrator and Jewish communal professionals. They will enhance their leadership capabilities, strengthen knowledge of advocacy and the legislative process, learn how to effectively frame and deploy a message, build relationships with state elected officials from the San Diego delegation and within the Jewish Caucus, become an issue expert on a topic selected by the cohort, and deepen connections to community leaders and like-minded peers.

Created and facilitated by the Jewish Community Foundation, Jewish Community Relations Council, Jewish Family Service, Leichtag Foundation and NextGen, the program is five sessions long including a trip to Sacramento to lobby on the selected issue and work in partnership with the Jewish Caucus chaired by Senator Block. Pre-trip training will include topics of advocacy and philanthropy. Post-trip work will include a debrief and opportunities for local engagement.

Read future news updates for reports on each of our sessions including the participation of our community partner ADL and others.
