Jewish Groups Push for Ballot Measures on Immigration and LGBTI Rights

11/06/2018 | Jerusalem Post

Get out the vote: It’s a biennial ritual for Jewish groups. But not for humans, for ideas — the state and local ballot initiatives that rarely get the level of attention that rock ’em sock ’em candidate battles do. This year is different, organizers are saying. They are crediting President Donald Trump’s 2016 election for elevating Jewish community interest in an array of propositions that include rolling back bans on felons voting Florida, preserving rights for transgender people in Massachusetts and reducing penalties for illicit drug use in Ohio.
