The Jewish Unity PAC (JUPAC) seeks to mobilize Jewish voters in Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan and other key swing states and will focus on attracting younger constituents through expertise in millennial and Gen-Z engagement.

In addition to Israel and antisemitism, JUPAC will focus on key Democratic issues including gun control, racial equality and climate change.

The PAC, which will also educate and help young voters submit absentee and mail-in ballots, was founded by Isabel Baer and Ethan Wolf.
