Our EveryAction Hero: Jewish Voice for Peace

EveryAction

We do everything from legislative organizing to engaging in campaigns that seek to put nonviolent pressure on the government both in the US and Israel to respect international law. So for example a member could email me and say "hey, I'm in the middle of Utah and I'm a member and I'd like to find other people near me". This month, our EveryAction hero is Jewish Voice for Peace.

This round-up just touches the surface: mentioning the appointment of a former Google executive to the Obama administration, highlighting the Utah senate's use of social media, and drawing attention to the Republican party's efforts to leverage crowdsourcing (Obama-style).
