AJC is the global advocate for the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel, and for the advancement of democratic values for all. Through the bridges we build,the understandings we develop, through quiet diplomacy and effective advocacy, AJC is helping to build a safer, more tolerant world for ourselves, our children, and generations to come.

Founded in 1944, AJC Detroit has been a thought leader, providing a unique voice and perspective in Michigan. Through programming and other activities, our regional office works to improve inter-ethnic and inter-religious relations in the Detroit area, and to protect civil and religious rights for all. While much of our advocacy takes place quietly and behind the scenes, it’s impact is wide-ranging and significant. We tackle the most pressing issues of the day in a deliberate, diplomatic and thoughtful manner – educating and influencing on the issues we care most deeply about as Americans and Jews – and the office serves as a forum for our local Jewish community to reflect on issues of Jewish identity and to strengthen the unifying elements of our religion and culture in order to promote Jewish continuity. In Detroit and around the world, AJC is a global voice for a global era.
