Bend the Arc is the only national Jewish organization focused exclusively on social change in the U.S. We work to achieve a society that is inclusive, equitable, and supportive of the dignity of every person across race, class, gender, age, ability, sexual orientation, and faith. We work to build a country that lives up to our values of justice and equality for all. We advocate for structural policy changes — in our city, state, and country — to achieve our vision of a society that is inclusive, equitable, and supportive of the dignity of every person across race, class, gender, age, ability, sexual orientation, and faith.

Since 2016, we’ve organized the local Jewish community in San Luis Obispo county to work in partnership with communities most impacted by economic inequality and systemic racial injustice. The San Luis Obispo chapter has been working to help reform our state's criminal justice system, support immigrant communities and Dreamers, and hold elected officials accountable. For activists of all ages, we offer opportunities to learn and develop as leaders of this movement.
