Bend the Arc draws on the long and important tradition of American Jewish activism, training Jewish community organizers and advocating for policies and practices supporting communities to be free, safe, and thriving. Over the past year, the 13-year-old organization has oriented their mission around the fight for Black liberation. This reflects Bend the Arc’s commitment to racial justice and their work to support and lift up Jews of Color. With support from RPF, Bend the Arc will continue to contribute a Jewish voice to multi-faith movements for justice, push back against antisemitism and white supremacy as connected threats to all marginalized groups and to our democracy, and grow its base of community organizers working to enact progressive policies like the BREATHE Act.
