Each year, JCPA convenes its network of 16 national agencies and 125 Jewish community relations councils to identify and build consensus on today’s most pressing matters through our resolutions process. Adopted resolutions become Jewish community relations policy. Resolutions, adopted at annually at JCPA’s national conference, influence and drive the work of our professional staff, our task forces, and our affiliate members.
Below is a list of all the resolutions JCPA and its network have passed, organized by year in descending order. You can also click on a topic area. For a summary of the resolutions by topic area, see our Policy Compendium. Please note that entries are summarized in the Compendium and may not reflect the full text of a given resolution.

Resolution on Expanding Voter Access
Expresses the belief that recent voter suppression efforts are a disservice to democracy with particularly negative impacts on Black, Indigenous, Latinx, disabled, transgender, low-income, young, and elderly voters. The resolution calls on the Jewish community to advocate for legislation to make voting more accessible and to oppose efforts to suppress the vote.
Resolution Condemning the Genocide of the Uyghur People
Condemns the Chinese Communist Party’s ongoing genocide against the Uyghur people, a Turkic ethnic and religious minority residing in the Xinjiang region. The resolution calls for additional sanctions, as well as an expansion of the targeted ban on products produced in or imported from the region.
Resolution on Renewing Our Commitment to Combatting Climate Change
Elevates the urgency of the climate change crisis and calls on Jewish communities to take action, building on JCPA’s extensive body of climate and environmental justice policy. The resolution calls on the Jewish community to educate itself and demand that our leaders be guided by the best available science and work together towards achieving climate justice.
Resolution on Supporting the Abraham Accords
Commends all of the individuals and governments whose work resulted in the signing of the Abraham Accords, including the United States, Israel, and Arab nations. The resolution urges the Biden Administration to seize upon the progress made in the Middle East, as evidenced by the Abraham Accords which the Trump Administration helped to bring about, and use its voice and leverage to expand the relationships between Israel and Muslim countries, and as another means for encouraging the Palestinians to forge a lasting peace with Israel.
