Who We Are | Bend the Arc Jewish Action

How we resist and win

Bend the Arc is a movement of tens of thousands of progressive Jews all across the country. For years, we’ve worked to build a more just society. Now we’re rising up in solidarity with everyone threatened by the Trump agenda to fight for the soul of our nation. Together we:

Stand with communities under attack

When it comes to attacks on immigrants, Muslims, people of color, our communities, and our democracy, we’ve seen this before. We won’t turn away or be silent — we'll show up in solidarity to fight terrible legislation and policies.

Hold elected officials accountable

If politicians are going to enable the immoral agenda of the Trump administration and the Republican Party, we’re going to hold them accountable. And we won’t hesitate to organize and fundraise to replace them with progressive champions.

Win local progressive victories

We have a long-term vision of what this country can be. We’re mobilizing in cities and states across the country, and advocating in Washington, to win progressive legislation and policies, like criminal justice reform and economic equity.

What you can do Step 1: Raise your hand

You got chutzpah? We’ve got work to do.

We believe in the beautiful but unfulfilled promise of this country as a land of opportunity, justice, and equality for all. The first step is to raise your hand with the belief that together we have the power to transform this country.

Join us Step 2: Take action

Raise your voice. You were made for this moment.

In the face of racism, inequality, and the politics of fear, we must rise up with courage to act boldly for justice. Our people’s history and prophetic tradition are our guide. Our partners are our leaders.

Our community is our power.

When we organize, we win. Bend the Arc has put out the call to communities across the country to organize in Moral Minyans: groups of 10 or more people acting locally as part of a national network of Jewish Resistance.
