    Join In solidarity with Immigrant Workers

    We will display the collective power and vital centrality of immigrants to the success of America’s economy and we will fight to force the Trump administration to end or scale back attacks on immigrant families.

    As Jews, we won’t let one single aspect of Trump’s hateful agenda pass without fighting back. In this moment, we are called to stand with those bearing the brunt of the Trump administration’s assault on human dignity—particularly immigrants facing the growing terror of increased deportations. As Bend the Arc CEO, Stosh Cotler has said, “We were made for this”—we understand resilience and we understand resistance. In cities and communities across the country, immigrant leaders are organizing events—marches, rallies, protests and town halls—to resist Trump’s deportation machine, oppose scapegoating of immigrant communities, and build a united front to support a vibrant and diverse future for our country.

    Bend the Arc: Pittsburgh has signed on as a co-sponsor of the May 1st march for immigrants and workers, organized by Casa San Jose and LCLAA Pittsburgh. The march calls for an end to ICE raids in Allegheny County, the rights of all workers to $15 an hour and a union, and the dignity and rights of all people, regardless of race or immigration status. 
    There are many ways that you can be involved in this important event.
    • Come to the march! It begins at 3pm at Hot Metal and South Water Street.
    • Come to the festival after the march for food, music and fun. PFT Hall, 10. South 19th Street, 5:30-7:30pm. There is going to be a Bend the Arc table at the event — please let us know if you would be willing to volunteer to sit at the table, distribute our swag, and answer questions about Bend the Arc.
    • The organizers need help creating large puppets for the march. There will be a big art build on Sunday between 12-7 at Bloomcraft (460 Melwood in North Oakland). Please come to help with this if you can.
    We hope to see you there!
