Advocacy for a New Generation
ACCESS, AJC's New Generation Program, empowers Jewish young professionals to engage with today's critical domestic and international issues. At the nexus between the Jewish community and the world, ACCESS reaches out to diplomats, opinion makers and young leaders of diverse religious and ethnic backgrounds. We empower members to engage on Israel, Iran and the greater Middle East, and on challenges to civility, tolerance and democracy globally in a thoughtful and effective way.
At ACCESS we believe a younger generation is increasingly shaping public opinion and policy around the world and that it is vital that Jewish voices participate in the conversation. We equip young Jewish leaders to stand at the forefront of this engagement and to be global agents of change.

It may be difficult today to imagine a fate worse than IS, but an Iran with nuclear-weapons capacity would be the gravest threat imaginable to regional and global security.
If Not Us, Who?
Jews face new threats and dangers, from efforts to isolate and demonize Israel to growing questions about the very future of some Jewish communities in Europe. Isn't it time for each of us to ask how we can help?
