    Turn Congress 180: NY-1 House Party

    Turn Congress 180 is a national effort built of local volunteer-led campaigns across the country that give key Representatives a choice — continue enabling an immoral agenda or turn 180 degrees towards protecting our democracy and our lives. American Jews in particular have a unique strategic role in standing against efforts to target immigrants, Muslims, women, people of color, the poor, and democracy itself.

    Rep. Zeldin of NY's 1st district is our Representative. He has voted in line with Donald Trump's position more than 97% of the time. He voted for Trumpcare. He voted in favor of penalizing states and localities for providing sanctuary to immigrants. He is not aligned with the values and interests of his constituents — us!

    On Wednesday, August 22nd at 6:30 pm, I’m inviting fellow progressive Jews and allies in our congressional district NY-1 to my home to launch our Turn Congress 180 campaign to hold Rep. Zeldin accountable. I would love for you to join us.

    At the meeting, we’ll spend time getting to know our neighbors who are interested in getting organized to hold key representatives accountable. Then volunteer roles will be up for grabs for specific tasks that will be explained at the meeting.

    In every generation, Jews have fought for freedom, dignity, and justice. And right now, we must raise our voices as Jews to confront the immorality of the Trump and rightwing agenda. When we raise our collective moral voice, we serve as a warning cry to those in power that their time on the wrong side of history is limited. And when we show up in solidarity with all who are threatened, we remind the world what never again truly means.

    Jewish Resistance Table Launch

    The Jewish Resistance Table is a platform to help us organize and amplify a wide-reaching, morally courageous and effective Jewish response to face this unpredictable and existential time. You have a role to play. Join us.

    WHY: During a time of unprecedented threats to our democracy and constitution, the elevation of violence against vulnerable communities (including but not limited to immigrants, Muslims, people perceived to be Muslim, people of color, Jews), the rise of white nationalism, and the visible role Jews are playing in this Administration, we need a powerful and compelling Jewish Resistance to meet this moment.

    Rooting our conversations, interactions, and strategies in our Jewish values, the Table will be a space to connect, share ideas, test strategy and generate momentum so that others may join us. While the organizations and formations who join the Table may have significantly different theories of social change as well as methods for addressing our current crisis , we come together with the shared recognition that we believe the Jewish community has a meaningful role to play in mitigating and opposing some of the most egregious changes taking place in our country. You have a role to play! Join us!

    WHAT: A new table, convened by Bend the Arc Jewish Action and hosted by Bend the Arc CEO Stosh Cotler, to grow and strengthen a Jewish response to face this dangerous and existential political moment.

    WHO: If one of these describes you, we invite you to join this table:

    • You are in a senior leadership role of a Jewish organization working to oppose some or all of the dangers activated by the current Administration and/or its supporters
    • You are a an individual leader who has gathered 10 or more people to take sustained action
    • You are an individual leader who has a platform that reaches over 100 people to take sustained action

    WHERE: We are hosting the Jewish Resistance Table using video conferencing technology. We know that building relationships and/or having meaningful conversations can be challenging when we are not together in person, so we are requiring all participants to join via video with their cameras turned on. Thank you for understanding this motivation and helping us create the best environment for success. If for any reason your lack of access to technology is a barrier to your participation, please let Andrea know at aanderson@bendthearc.us.
