Economic equity

Economic equity

We see the historic levels of wealth inequality in our country as an urgent and unsustainable moral crisis with corrosive impacts on our democracy. And we recognize the many ways that issues of poverty and opportunity intersect with racial justice, immigration, and civil rights.

Drawing on the long and proud Jewish history of fighting for economic justice, Bend the Arc works to create an economy with livable wages, paid family leave, and other basic economic rights for all of us in the 21st century.

We advocate for a country where the wealthiest pay their fair share, where everyone has a path to a decent life with dignity, and where all are cared for by a robust social safety net.
