About Bend the Arc:
Bend the Arc is a movement of over 125,000 progressive Jews across America who are working together to achieve our vision: to transform our country to be inclusive, equitable, and supportive of the dignity of every person across race, class, gender and faith. We are the only national Jewish organization focused exclusively on social change in the U.S.
We’re rising up in solidarity to repair the damage of the last 4 years, confront the racial injustice of the last 400 years, and to build a new America for all of us. Alongside all who are impacted by antisemitism and white supremacy, we’re working to expand civil rights, defend democracy, and protect each other. We’re mobilizing in cities and states across the country and advocating in Washington to win a new future — where everyone can thrive, no matter what we look like, how we pray, or where we come from.
Bend the Arc has recently adopted a new strategic plan to guide our work in the coming years. This plan is centered on our commitment to dismantling white supremacy and advancing Black liberation in our organization, in the Jewish community, and in the US at large. We are seeking candidates who are ready to engage with a long-term organizational race equity transformation process at a historically majority white and Ashkenazi organization, as we strive to increase our racial diversity and move closer to embodying our racial equity commitments.
The Bend the Arc family of organizations consists of Bend the Arc: Jewish Action, our 501(c)(4) organizing and advocacy arm; Bend the Arc Jewish Action PAC, the first and only Jewish PAC to advocate exclusively for progressive policies in the U.S.; and Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice, our 501(c)(3) education and leadership arm.
Headquartered in New York City, we have remote staff nationwide with clusters in the Bay Area, Los Angeles and Washington DC, with a network of staffed chapters, volunteer-led local groups, and affiliates organizing nationwide.
