Jewish Community Meetings to Resist Trump

On January 20, Donald Trump was sworn in as President, with a Congress eager to pursue an extremist agenda. How we choose to respond to the threats ahead will say everything about who we are as Jewish people and as citizens.

Progressive Jews across the country are gathering in community meetings to build a powerful movement to defend our values and engage in direct action. Will you join us?

These meetings are the first step in Bend the Arc Jewish Action's long-term strategy to overcome the dangers of our new political reality. Together, we will resist, we will fight back, and we will win.
