About

The first and only Jewish PAC to exclusively advocate for the progressive domestic principles our community has cared about for generations.

For the first time in history, we’re marshaling the political resources of the Jewish community on behalf of progressive domestic policies to help elect leaders committed to building a thriving multiracial democracy in America that’s truly for all of us.

Who we are

Bend the Arc Jewish Action PAC is a community of thousands of Jewish Americans coming together to advocate for our vision of America as a nation that values democracy, equality, and justice. Some of us are longtime political activists, and others of us are making our very first political contributions — all to help elect leaders committed to building a thriving multiracial democracy that's truly for all of us.

Our PAC serves as the progressive voice for American Jews in the political arena and supports candidates who live up to our community’s legacy of social activism. In fact, we are the first and only Jewish PAC to exclusively advocate for the progressive domestic principles our community has cared deeply about for generations. To put that in perspective, there are currently 40+ Jewish PACs and we’re the only one founded with the sole mission of effecting change here in the United States, and not abroad.

For the first time in history, we’re marshaling the political resources of the Jewish community on behalf of the progressive domestic policies that American Jews report in survey after survey as our top political priorities — issues like economic justice, racial justice, civil rights, including LGBTQ and gender equality, as well as immigrant justice. In doing so, we’re proving that candidates who seek our community’s support must boldly speak out for progressive change in the United States. Now in our fourth election cycle, we’re building on our proven track record of success and mobilizing the American Jewish community to:

  1. Defeat white nationalism in Washington by replacing Republicans in Congress with endorsed candidates who are aligned with our values;
  2. Move the political conversation in a more progressive direction and encourage policymaking that reflects our values; and
  3. Redefine the narrative about what motivates Jewish political giving: racial justice, economic justice, civil rights, and a thriving multiracial democracy.

Together, we are engaging our representatives in Washington and demonstrating that American Jews are not just a single-issue constituency, but rather a community that is bound by a moral imperative to fight for a society where we can all live, love and thrive. Together, we will make real the words of Martin Luther King Jr., that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

Why Donate To Candidates Through Bend the Arc Jewish Action PAC?

There is power in numbers and in organizing. In today’s political environment, where candidates must spend an inordinate amount of time fundraising, campaign contributions are among the most effective methods of reaching elected officials. When you make a contribution to Bend the Arc Jewish Action PAC or to a candidate through our website, you are giving politicians more than a check. You are letting them know that you support them as part of a progressive American Jewish community that expects them to show up for racial justice, economic justice and the policies that support a true multiracial democracy where everyone can live, love and thrive. 

Too often, conventional political wisdom suggests that candidates only need to address Israel to earn support from Jewish American voters. However, poll after poll indicates that Jewish Americans are most motivated at the ballot box by domestic issues of social justice and civil rights. By investing in and making donations through our PAC, our members are helping to correct this distorted narrative. And, by shifting this narrative, we’ll influence the political conversation in a more progressive direction and help our movement win long-term systemic change.

Our accomplishments in numbers

The 2020 general election was Bend the Arc Jewish Action PAC’s third election cycle and the most successful to date. Our PAC raised over $1 million for the first time in our history, helped elect two new senators, and all but two of our incumbents in competitive races emerged victorious. We not only surpassed all fundraising goals and dramatically grew the number of Leadership Committee members, we achieved our main goal of defeating Donald Trump and adding to our Democratic numbers in Congress.

Endorsed 40 candidates in total
