75 Southeastern Delegates Participate in AJC's Global Forum

Last week, in Washington, D.C., 75 delegates from across the Southeast attended Global Forum. We joined presidents, foreign ministers, and more than 2,500 people from over 80 countries to speak with one voice at the AJC Global Forum—affirming our power to act and providing steadfast support for Israel and the Jewish people.  Among the many distinguished speakers was our own Mayor Kasim Ree(Pictured above with Atlanta participants). During his plenary remarks, commemorating the 35th anniversary of Project Interchange, Mayor Reed thanked Paul Berger and his late wife Debra Berger, founder of Project Interchange, on behalf of more than six thousand alumni. Read the full press release here.
