Rise Up! May 1 Jewish Meetups

Rise up! May 1, 2017


As part of the Jewish resistance, 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 his administration’s assault on human dignity—particularly immigrants facing the growing terror of increased deportations.

On May 1, American Jews are joining immigrant-led events across the country—marches, rallies, protests and town halls—to resist Trump’s deportation machine. You can join a Jewish meetup near you or find out how to host your own:

Host a May 1 Meetup

Our goal for May 1 is to support Jewish turnout to strikes, marches, and other actions in as many cities as possible around the country. In order to have a Jewish presence at as many events as possible, we’re asking leaders like you to host pre-event meetups so that Jews, Bend the Arc activists, and allies have a clear way to get together. 

To add a meet-up to the calendar, first check the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM)’s event listings for the specific time and location of the May 1 action in your city, and then pick a gathering place for a meetup and post it on our May 1 meetup page.

Listen to the National Campaign Briefing

Want even more information? On April 13, we were joined by Isaias Guerrero of FIRM (Fair Immigration Reform Movement) for a national campaign call with Bend the Arc supporters. You can listen to a recording of the call for more background and details about this effort:
