JFREJ and The Jewish Vote are honored to be honoring the following mensches in the trenches at this year’s Mazals Breakthrough Party:

Jews for Jamaal, for their extraordinary efforts in securing a historic victory in the 2020 primaries and playing a leading role in electing Jamaal Bowman for Congress.

Let My People Go, for their sacred organizing that raised over $400k and released over 60 people from detention during the height of COVID-19 in NYS.

Anthonine Pierre, for her brilliant leadership in the citywide budget justice campaign to defund the NYPD, and to the Brooklyn Movement Center for their commitment to black-led, neighborhood-based organizing in service of a city where we all have the freedom to thrive.

The nurses of NYSNA (New York State Nurses Association), for the tremendous, life-saving efforts they’ve contributed this year as frontline workers in the fight against COVID-19, often despite the lack of leadership from our elected leaders.

With Special Guests:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Rep.-elect Jamaal Bowman, Lumumba Bandele, and Tony Kushner and Emcee Morgan Bassichis!
