Take Action

Bend the Arc is organizing around the country — in the streets and on Zoom — to build a country that’s truly for all of us. Together, we show up alongside communities under attack, hold elected officials accountable, and win progressive victories at the local, state, and national level.

Get involved

My husband and I thought an activist would come and lead us after we cleaned the living room. We realized WE had to make this happen. ‘Us??’ But we decided to step up, that now is the time to stretch ourselves. We got a well-thought-out agenda and help preparing. We had a small but very passionate, engaged group of people attend. We're working on next steps and connecting with others in the Bay Area.

What we do

As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, inspired by Reverend Theodore Parker, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” We know that change doesn’t happen on its own — we each have a role to play. Together we:

Show up alongside communities under attack

When it comes to attacks on immigrants, our communities, and our democracy, we won’t turn away or be silent — we work in solidarity to build a country where all of us are truly safe and free.

Hold local elected officials to account

If politicians are going to threaten our communities and seek to divide us from our allies, we’re going to hold them accountable. And we won’t hesitate to replace them.

Win progressive victories

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