PR Newswire

NEW YORK, March 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The number of individuals worldwide watching American Jewish Committee (AJC) Advocacy Anywhere programming is growing as the Coronavirus pandemic compels many across the United States and in countries around the world to stay in their homes.

The new online initiative, accessible via Zoom and Facebook, has so far attracted hundreds of thousands of viewers in just the first 10 days alone.

"Continuing to engage people across the United States and around the world is vital to AJC's mission. With considerable experience in utilizing communications technologies and a social media platform of 2.3 million followers, AJC was able to pivot quickly from traditional in-person diplomacy and educational advocacy work to online interaction," said AJC CEO David Harris.
