"Expanding the Definition of Jewish Political Action" - Bend the Arc Launches First Ever National Jewish PAC Focused on Domestic Issues
Changing the definition of what Jewish political action in Washington can look like, Bend the Arc Jewish Action, a national progressive Jewish organization, today launched the first-ever national Jewish PAC focused exclusively on domestic issues.
Today, Bend the Arc joined 66 national organizations in urging members of the House of Representatives to oppose legislation that would repeal the Estate Tax (H.R. 1105).
Today, Bend the Arc joined 64 organizations in writing members of Congress in support of the Student Non-Discrimination Act (SNDA) and urging its inclusion in the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
Bend the Arc leaders, board members, and supporters met with key representatives of the White House and Congress to discuss domestic policy and what can be done to advance progressive reform in Washington.
Today, Bend the Arc and more than 35 civil rights and religious organizations wrote members of Congress in support of the Democracy Restoration Act (S. 772/ H.R. 1459). This legislation would restore voting rights in federal elections to individuals who have been released from prison. The letter notes that “the current patchwork of laws that disenfranchises people with criminal records has created an inconsistent and unfair federal electoral process, perpetuating entrenched racial discrimination.”
