NOTE: JwJET does not want dues to be a barrier to membership for organizations that share our values and want to work with us, so adjustments can be negotiated in appropriate cases. In the case of other coalitions, for instance, we are open to an exchange of membership in our respective organizations. We are also willing to take into account certain in-kind contributions, such as donated office space, contributed mailings, robo-calling, etc.
