Share the Plate supports Bend the Arc: Pittsburgh

During November and December we raised $855 for Bend the Arc: Pittsburgh, part of a national movement of tens of thousands of progressive Jews that believes in the beautiful but unfulfilled promise of this country as a land of opportunity, justice, and equality for all.
