Hadassah

Advocacy Update - January 2, 2018

Tuesday, Jan 2 2018

The Hadassah Day in the District is for women who do.  

Advocating for Israel and women’s health equity is always important, especially as we head into an election year. That Congressional recess in February -- from February 19 to  23 -- is a great time to have a Day in the District. Here are three reasons you should consider participating: 

  1. Long-term relationship-building with legislators is not only for lobbyists in Washington, DC. The critical work of Hadassah, as a convener of the Coalition for Women’s Health Equity, would not be possible without the efforts of units nationwide who make sure that elected officials understand how much important women's health equity is to constituents like you. 
  2. Having a Day in the District ensures that your legislator sees the power of Hadassah women, represented by individuals like you voicing your opinion in small groups. 
  3. It is our honor and our responsibility to be strong advocates for Israel as the largest Women’s Zionist organization and one of the largest Jewish International NGOs (non-governmental organization). Through advocacy, we can have a huge impact in ensuring a strong US-Israel relationship. This relationship safeguards millions of dollars in grants that support our hospitals each year. 

Interested in being a changemaker? There are step-by-step guides, talking points and people who will help connect you to a leader planning a Day in the District in your area.

Spread the word. Please share this email or share our advocacy posts on Facebook.
