We are investing $50,000 in our Jewish-led partner, Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice—a deeply embedded leader in the fight against antisemitism and white supremacy and a national Jewish organization focused exclusively on social change.
Today marks exactly four years since eleven beloved people were murdered in the deadliest attack against Jewish people in American history—the horrendous mass shooting by a white supremacist at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.
As we remember the lives and loved ones who were stolen in that massacre, we know that the antisemitic hate that fueled that attack is not isolated. It is part of an exponential rise in antisemitic hate incidents across the United States—horrendous violence, brutal assaults, vandalism, and harassment in-person and online.
Together, we are speaking out and standing in solidarity with our Jewish neighbors in the face of this terrifying crisis.
Your investment will support Bend the Arc’s vital work of fighting antisemitism and pushing for social change, including their racial equity and leadership initiative to support Jews of Color. We are deeply honored to invest in Bend the Arc, whose name is so beautifully derived from this Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quote and inspired by Reverend Theodore Parker:
“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”
