As shown by Part VI-A of Jewish Voice for Peace's Form 990 for 2005 (next page, highlighting is mine), the organization reported no expenditures for lobbying or efforts to influence public opinion on legislation. This is at variance with an item on its own Web site (http://www.jewishvoiceforpeace.org/publish/article_11.shtml) that says,
On August 15, about 50 members and supporters gathered in front of Nancy Pelosi's office to demand that Congress push for the
removal of all settlements.
Members of JVP-Bay Area and supporters protest outside of Democratic Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi's office. Signs say "Remove ALL settlements" and "Gaza is the tip of the iceberg."
In addition, the organization's 2005 Annual Report (http://www.jewishvoiceforpeace.org/JVP2005AnnualReport.pdf) says,
Letter from the Directors
…JVP is a trusted source for media, and we’re becoming more influential. Thanks to our supporters, we are fast becoming a force that our congressional representatives need to reckon with. Leaders of groups that give Israel their blind support are working hard against us specifically because we not only shatter their myth of representing all Jews – we show they don’t even represent a majority…
