This day is finally here:
President Joe Biden.
Vice President Kamala Harris.
Senator Raphael Warnock.
Senator Jon Ossoff.
And today… twice impeached former President Donald Trump and enablers like Stephen Miller will leave the White House for good.
You made this moment possible. Bend the Arc leaders and volunteers from Georgia to Pennsylvania helped elect Biden, Harris, Warnock, and Ossoff. Together, we won the presidency, a Democratic Senate, and a chance to renew our democracy. Join us tonight on our national call to celebrate and hear our plans for this historic year.
On the call, you’ll hear from:
- Sabrina Sojourner, shaliakh tzibur (spiritual leader) and our host for the evening, on what this day means
- Bend the Arc: Jewish Action Atlanta leaders on how they mobilized to elect Warnock and Ossoff
- Stosh Cotler and Rachèl Laforest, Bend the Arc CEO and Chief Program Offer on Bend the Arc’s work in 2021
This moment demands moral clarity — and we will rise to meet it together. As a Jewish movement, we know what it’s like to hold hope and mourning at the same time. On the call, we’ll have ritual and resources, both strategic and sacred.
If you can’t join us tonight, we’ll leave you with this: In his first days in office, President Biden will issue key executive orders undoing some of the harm of Trump’s four years, including rescinding the Muslim Ban, beginning to end the family separation policy at the border, and issuing a federal mask mandate.
These are major victories, made possible through organizing and advocacy by our partners and by people like you. And they’re also just the ground floor. We’re going to build something beautiful together on this foundation.
In 2021 and beyond, we’ll need to keep the pressure on Biden and Congress — the leaders we helped elect — and make sure they deliver for our families and our communities, from ensuring permanent protections for all immigrants to passing expanded, comprehensive COVID-19 relief. We’ll need to make sure they commit to dismantling white supremacy, from prisons to police forces to the halls of Congress themselves.
At Bend the Arc, we’re committed to continuing that fight — and we want you to be part of it. Join us for our national call tonight at 7:30pm ET/4:30pm PT.
Thank you for all you do,
The Bend the Arc team
P.S. Our special call tonight will end with time to spare before tonight’s televised Celebrating America event — so you can make sure to catch both by RSVPing now!
