We believe that building a more just America requires engagement, organizing and leadership. Inspired by Jewish tradition, we must all take action and do our part to build a better future.

Organizing campaigns help put power in the hands of individuals, families, workers and communities, strengthening democracy and moving us closer to the promise of an America where everyone can share in social and economic opportunity, and enjoy equal rights and liberties.

The issues of mass incarceration, sentencing disparities, and police violence have drastic impacts on our communities — and are both the result of, and perpetuate, the racial injustice that is the long legacy of white supremacy in this country. Criminal justice reform speaks to our imperative as Jews to stand up against oppression and work to achieve a more peaceful and just society.

Domestic Workers

Bend the Arc is proud to be part of the domestic worker movement which is embracing the interdependence of caregivers and employers. High quality care, respectful communication, and livable wages are important for those receiving care, for caregivers, and for our country as a whole.

California is in the middle of a budget crisis that is devastating our communities, compromising health and safety, and blocking the path to opportunity for young adults and low-income communities. Join us to create a just and equitable society that provides flexible pathways to self-sufficiency and self-actualization, supported by a community dedicated to the health, well-being, and success of all its inhabitants.

In the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision to dismantle key sections of the Voting Rights Act, Bend the Arc is launching a voting rights campaign and will be working with our allies to pass new legislation to protect the right to vote for all. We can fix this if we act together.
