Three days ago, Bend the Arc and allies protested in eight major cities against Donald Trump’s incendiary rhetoric against immigrants, Muslims, and women. Held on the date when in 1964 two white Jewish activists, Andrew Goodman and Mickey Schwerner, along with Black Christian activist James Chaney, were murdered in Mississippi for registering black voters.
In New York City, Bend the Arc supporters rallied outside of Trump Tower before marching to the Marriott Marquis, where Mr. Trump was meeting with evangelical leaders. Bend the Arc activists and allies also held vigils in Chicago, Raleigh, Washington DC, San Francisco, Palo Alto, the East Bay, and Los Angeles, while thousands of American Jews participated by holding vigils in their homes nationwide. The actions in Washington and Los Angeles were co-sponsored byJews United For Justice Campaign Fund and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference of Southern California, respectively.
