In 2016, Bend the Arc led the only national Jewish effort to oppose Trump.
Now, in 2020, we’ve launched the largest campaign in our organization’s history to defeat Trump and his white nationalist allies — We Rise As One.
We started by sharing our polling of Jewish American voters, showing that 3 out of 4 feel less safe today than four years ago, and nevertheless are inspired to take action.
Then we shared a powerful video — watched by tens of thousands of people — telling the story of our community’s values and resilience.
Plus, launch parties are scheduled across the country this month for Jews and allies to bring the campaign to their community.
Every dollar we spend this year is dedicated to building a multiracial democracy where all of us are safe and free. Join as an early contributor to this Jewish campaign.
As part of We Rise As One, last week we monitored CPAC (the Conservative Political Action Conference).
CPAC is an annual national conference in Washington DC, which has long been a focal point for white nationalism and the weaponization of antisemitism by the right.
Watching hours of extremist, bigoted footage is as painful as you think it is, but our work as Bend the Arc requires us to understand the threats our communities are facing.
We put together and distributed a resource about white nationalists at CPAC1 to educate ourselves and our allies about politicians who advance rhetoric and policies that endanger us all.
You can look forward to more critical resources like this from Bend the Arc, plus opportunities to organize to remove these politicians from office.
American Jews know that this election is one of the most important in our lifetimes.
Our goal at Bend the Arc is to support you — Jews and allies — to make an impact this year, rise up in solidarity, and build a country that is truly for all of us.
We take this work seriously and appreciate every donation you give that helps make it possible.
