Defund Hate: A Jewish Immigration Campaign

Defund Hate: A Jewish Immigration Campaign

We are American Jews who reject Trump and his Administration's cruel immigration policies. 

Right now, Bend the Arc is fighting to stop the flow of money to Trump's anti-immigrant agenda, including the wall, aggressive and harmful deportations, and deadly immigration jails. We know walls won't keep us safe; directly combatting the hate and white nationalism here in our country will. This work follows the lead of immigrant-led groups like Detention Watch Network and United We Dream as part of the Defund Hate coalition.

Our vision is a country that welcomes those fleeing for their survival — because as Jews we know what it’s like to run from terror and violence, over and over again.
