Bend the Arc's next CEO wants to hear from you

We've received an outpouring of support from people all across the country — movement partners, members of Congress, Bend the Arc leaders, and members like you.

Now, we want to hear directly from you. Share a question or comment for Amy right here. Ask her about anything, from her favorite item on the seder plate to her strategy for taking on white nationalism and white supremacy.

Below, you’ll find quotes, tweets, and news articles celebrating Amy and Bend the Arc. We hope seeing these messages makes you feel connected and proud, because we wouldn’t be here without you.
