A Wider Bridge (AWB), the pro-Israel LGBTQ organization, is proud to present the first-ever World Zionist Congress voter guide for LGBTQ Jews and our allies! The guide presents the relevant position statements of each of the 15 American slates running, on the issues affecting our work: equality, pluralism, and democracy. By working with diverse slates to advocate for our values, AWB seeks to build a more LGBTQ inclusive and accepting Israel and global Jewish community across political, cultural, religious, and ideological lines.
Over the past two weeks, we reached out to each slate to answer three identical questions and aggregated relevant quotes from slates’ statements. We’ve listed slates in alphabetical order below.
We hope this guide will better educate and inform your vote in this year’s election. We need more LGBTQ and allied voters to make their voices heard to ensure a stronger, more inclusive Israel. Please vote by March 11, 2020!
