Bend the Arc Jewish Action PAC was founded in 2015 as the first and only Jewish PAC (political action committee) to exclusively advocate for the progressive domestic principles the Jewish community has cared deeply about for generations.
The PAC serves as the progressive voice for American Jews in the political arena and supports candidates who live up to the Jewish community’s legacy of social activism. The PAC engages representatives in Washington and demonstrates that American Jews are not just a single-issue constituency, but rather a community that is bound by a moral imperative to fight for a society where all people live, love and thrive.
Bend the Arc Jewish Action PAC supports both current Members of Congress and those challenging incumbents for federal office. Candidates are evaluated based on their track record and positions on a range of issues including voting rights, criminal justice reform, reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, racial justice, economic justice, and immigrant justice. The PAC is especially interested in candidates that are willing to take risks to do what is right, that are effective in championing the right policies, and whose races are strategic and important in shifting the balance of power in the House and Senate.
