JDC meets with White House officials and senior humanitarian aid officers to discuss work in the field.

As part of JDC’s work in Washington, Board members and staff traveled to our nation’s capital for meetings, culminating in a session with White House officials. Susan Sher (First Lady Michelle Obama’s Chief of Staff) and Danielle Borrin (Associate Director of Public Engagement), who serve as President Obama’s liaisons to the Jewish community, engaged with JDC representatives to learn about our work.

Also during this Washington D.C. visit, JDC reinforced its wide range of humanitarian assistance activities, meeting with the CEO of InterAction, the largest alliance of U.S.-based international development and humanitarian nongovernmental organizations (of which JDC is a member) and with senior officials of USAID (the US Agency for International Development), the central worldwide humanitarian assistance arm of the US government. When JDC responds to a natural or man-made disaster, we coordinate our relief efforts with both entities, most recently exemplified with our Haiti earthquake relief campaign.

This trip and the meetings were a part of JDC’s efforts to strengthen relationships with government officials and to share JDC’s global work with policy makers on Capitol Hill, in federal agencies, and beyond.

Logging In With One of Your Social Web Site Logins

Instead of trying to remember a bunch of special username/password combinations to log in to different web sites that you visit, you can now link your account on this web site to your account on one (or more) of the social media web sites shown and log in with the same username/password combination that you use on that social web site to log in to our site.

To provide this connection in a secure manner, we use Gigya, a social network connection provider that works behind the scenes to make safe, secure connections between user accounts on different systems, such as popular social media web sites like Facebook and web sites like ours where you are actively involved in social issues and causes.

Each time you log in, Gigya uses special application programming interfaces (APIs) to establish the connection between the sites and validate your username and password. Neither our web site or Gigya receive or store your social network passwords.

In addition to reducing the number of logins you have to remember, connecting your accounts can make it quicker and easier to share an activity or cause you feel passionately about from our web site with your friends on your social web sites.

You can break the connection between your accounts at any time.
