It's Bend the Arc's 10th birthday!

We’re reflecting on everything our movement has built together over the last decade. Share in the joy at


Ten years ago tomorrow, Bend the Arc was born — as the only domestic-focused Jewish organization to bring a clear and unabashedly progressive Jewish voice to our nation’s political discourse. We couldn’t have known then just how critical our voice would be in these 10 years.

Thank you for being a part of this movement — we have SO much to be proud of.

Together, with you and hundreds of thousands of Jews and allies around the country, we have grown a powerful Jewish organizing network in dozens of cities, fought the rise of far-right anti-democratic movements, helped elect the most diverse Congress in US history, and risen up for a vision of our country where Black lives matter and all of us are safe and free. (And there’s so much more.)

We compiled some of our favorite memories, milestones, and victories on a special 10 year anniversary site — join our movement in celebrating this shehechiyanu moment.

On our 10 year anniversary site, you can:

📸 revisit highlights from last 10 years of our movement through story & photos

💬 hear from friends, partners, and leaders about what we’ve accomplished together

💜 celebrate the leadership of Bend the Arc’s outgoing CEO, Stosh Cotler

We’re also looking forward to the next 10 years: Over the coming weeks we will continue to reflect on milestones from our movement’s journey. And, we’ll share ways you can take action, rooted in a vision for a bold, fearless future where everyone belongs and thrives.

You’ve made the last 10 years of Bend the Arc possible — and you shape what we can build together in the next 10 years. Thank you for being part of this powerful community of Jews and allies who fight every day to make this a country where all of us are safe and free.

With deep gratitude & excitement for what’s ahead,

The Bend the Arc team 💛
