New York – Following the results of last night’s elections, Stosh Cotler, CEO of Bend the Arc Jewish Action, released the following statement:
“The election results in Virginia, New Jersey and across the country last night are solid proof that the Resistance is working. Americans are waking up to the dangers of the Trump agenda and rejecting it at the polls. We are especially inspired by the diversity of the winners, with people of color and members of the LGBTQ community making history nationwide. We offer our congratulations to all of these barrier-breaking leaders.
Together, our voices make a difference -- on election day and every day. When we show up, we win. We at Bend the Arc Jewish Action will continue our commitment to showing up each and every day to fight for the values that won last night, and we challenge the entire American Jewish community to do the same. Last night provided more evidence that we can stop the Trump agenda and build a country that lives up to our highest ideals.”
