UHP Community Opportunity: J Street National Conference

Hi UHP friends!

I am an honors alum who graduated last year. Being in Honors was one of my highlights of college years. I now work for J Street, a pro-Israel, pro-peace, pro-diplomacy advocacy organization and non-profit and we’re having our National Conference in D.C. October 26-29th! Attending J Street’s conference is a really excellent opportunity to learn about Middle East diplomacy and network with regional and issue experts.

Students can go to the entire conference for $36, and I have a number of discounted ‘friends and family’ tickets for professors and alum for only $50 (regularly $475). Please just reach out to me before registering at jordannewmark@jstreet.org so I can keep track of the UHP Community delegation!

See below for more detailed information:

The J Street Conference constitutes the most significant global gathering of pro-Israel, pro-peace, pro-democracy advocates and activists and has grown to become the third largest gathering of American Jews. Programming will focus not only on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but also address broader challenges in American politics, foreign policy and the changing landscape of the American Jewish community. There are already dozens of Members of Congress confirmed, as well as Members of the Israeli Knesset. Plus, we have invited all 2020 presidential candidates to join.

J Street believes it is vital for the next generation of pro-diplomacy leaders and experts to join us in Washington.

Highlights include:
– In conjunction with Crooked Media, our opening night will feature a live podcast taping of Pod Save the World, with hosts Tommy Vietor and Ben Rhodes
– Hear the ideas that will shape the foreign policy debates that will dominate the 2020 presidential and congressional elections
– Learn from and network with top experts in American foreign policy and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
– Attend trainings and workshops on messaging, online tools and political advocacy
Past speakers include: Ambassador Susan Rice, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Secretary of State John Kerry, Speaker Nancy Pelosi
