Bend the Arc is uniting progressive Jewish voices across America to fight for justice for all.

How we bend the arc

Bend the Arc is building a multiracial, multiethnic, intergenerational movement of Jews and allies all across the country who are rising up to build an American future free from white supremacy, antisemitism, and racism. In Washington, DC and cities across the country we:

Rise up in solidarity

Solidarity across race, faith, class, and gender is the only way to build power and dismantle the systems of oppression that harm and endanger our communities. We have to do it together. None of us will be free until all of us are free.

Invest in our shared future

We’re building the multiracial democracy that’s been promised in America but never achieved. We’re investing in systems that keep our communities safe and divesting from systems that uphold white supremacy.

Build a new America

We’re fighting for the joyful future we deserve: one where Black liberation is realized and where all of us are safe and thriving, no matter what we look like or where we come from.

What you can do

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.

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.
