Progressive Jews To Stage Protest Of Lee Zeldin

Taking aim at one of only two Jewish Republican members of Congress, Bend The Arc, a progressive Jewish group, is planning to protest outside the office of New York Rep. Lee Zeldin on Monday.

“In the spirit of the Jewish High Holidays, a time of awakening, atonement and accountability, activists will urge Rep. Zeldin, one of only two Jewish Republicans in Congress, to wake up and choose a side: With or Against White Supremacy,” Bend the Arc said in a statement.

Activists are asking Zeldin to “end his complicity with President Trump’s radical agenda” including the president’s immigration policy. They are also demanding Zeldin support legislation censuring President Trump for his response to the Charlottesville events.
