✨SAVE THE DATE✨
Bend the Arc is organizing an Interfaith Day of Action for immigrant justice next Wednesday, April 20. More details below!
This April, for the first time in 30 years, Muslims, Jews, Christians, Sikhs, Baha’is, Jains, Hindus, Buddhists, and Indigenous nations will celebrate Ramadan, Passover, Easter, Vaisakhi, Mahavir Jayanti, Theravada New Year, and the Gathering of Nations at the same time.
It’s a massive interfaith celebration — and a perfect opportunity for Bend the Arc to organize Jews and allies to raise our voices for justice.
Save the date: On April 20, we’ll lobby members of Congress across the country and take online action to demand cuts to inhumane immigration enforcement and investments in dignity for all.
We’ll be joined by our friends at Detention Watch Network, Amnesty International USA, Unitarian Universalist Association, Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, and Quixote Center.
Right now, Congress is crafting next year’s budget for how our country spends our resources. It’s crucial that they are pushed in a moral direction, and we have stories they need to hear.
So many Jewish people owe our lives to family being able to migrate to the United States. But today, immigrant and border communities are under siege by over-funded and inhumane immigration enforcement agencies that disproportionately target Black and brown families.
That’s why our multiracial Jewish community is rising up with allies to divest from these unjust systems and invest in transforming this society to one that is truly welcoming of immigrants.
Keep an eye out for an email from us on the morning of Wednesday, April 20, about how you can contact your member of Congress and support this work.
Thank you for taking action with us for immigrant justice and wishing all who celebrate a sweet and joyous Passover of liberation,
The Bend the Arc team
