Here’s what happened this week + what’s coming

What. A. Week.

💌 First, on Sunday, the 40 young Jews participating in the Jeremiah Fellowship helped drive over 1,000 messages to Congress, demanding they champion justice for immigrant communities under attack.

☎️ Then, Wednesday, this community made our message even louder during a national call-in day that generated phone calls to over 50 members of Congress.

At Bend the Arc, we believe that developing the next generation of Jewish leadership is critical to building the thriving, multiracial democracy we long for. That’s what the Jeremiah Fellowship is all about.

If you’re inspired by the action our community took this week, help make sure the young Jews in your life know about the Jeremiah Fellowship’s new 2020 cohort — which is accepting applications and nominations now!
The details: From April to August 2020, the Jeremiah Fellowship is an organizing and leadership program for young Jews (ages 22-32).

This year, Jeremiah Fellows built power in 8 cities across the country — visiting legislators, developing campaigns, and organizing actions. Next year the Fellowship is expanding even more, to 16 cities across the country.

This one-of-a-kind national program is accepting applications for a cohort of 80 young Jews, and your help is needed to find people who are ready for this opportunity.

Take a look at all the cities where fellows are being recruited + think about who you know in those areas + recommend them through an easy form.

This has been a big week, and we are so grateful. Thank you for all that you do to build a just world.

In solidarity,

Carrie Sterns
Jeremiah Fellowship National Director
