WASHINGTON, DC - Today, honorary event chair, President Bill Clinton, and the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) will honor Ann Lewis with the NJDC Belle Moskowitz Award. Ann is a seasoned political activist and member of NJDC’s Chairman’s Council.

“Ann is a dear friend of NJDC and an invaluable leader in our community. NJDC along with President Bill Clinton will ensure that tonight’s event will be a testament to the impact Ann has made on all of us,” said Michael M. Adler, immediate past Chairman of NJDC. “Ann has helped shape NJDC into the organization we are today and continues to leave her mark on the highest levels of American politics and government.”

Ann is the president of No Limits, a non-partisan, non-political organization, using new technology and personal networks, providing information and opportunities to discuss local, national and global challenges. On the Hillary Clinton for President Campaign she oversaw outreach to women voters and to the Jewish community and was a member of the communications team. She also served in the White House from 1997 - 2000 as Director of Communications and then Counselor to President Bill Clinton.

NJDC is proud to honor Ann with the inaugural Belle Moskowitz Award. The award is named for Belle Moskowitz, who became the most politically influential woman in the U.S. when she served as close political advisor to New York Governor and 1928 presidential candidate Al Smith.

“Belle Moskowitz is someone who has left behind a reputation of great political influence, and NJDC will be pleased to honor an individual each year who portrays a strong leadership and dedication to progressive politics,” said Adler.

This reception will be held this evening in Washington, DC.
