#JewsFor15

#JewsFor15

Income inequality is an economic crisis and a moral one. In 2016, Bend the Arc members, supporters and allies are working to help win minimum wage increases in states and cities where legislators or voters are deciding whether to pass a $15 minimum wage.

Voting Rights

After the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act, a flurry of local efforts are preventing the young, the elderly and people of color from exercising their fundamental right. Bend the Arc is working with our allies to pass new legislation to protect the right to vote for all. We can fix this if we act together.
