Today’s Action: Pass the Palestinian Children and Families Act!

We take a break from our own country’s humanitarian crises to address another’s – because we’re funding it.

Israel’s arch-conservative government, supported by United States foreign aide, is carrying out an illegal occupation (determined so by the United Nations many times) of Palestinian land. This often-violent occupation has expanded over decades, and millions of Palestinians live in a state of upheaval and apartheid, denied access to equal legal rights and basic needs including clean water, housing, medical access (including vaccinations), and the freedom to travel.

Democrats in Congress have introduced legislation to finally address our financial support of the demolition of Palestinian homes, detention of Palestinian children, and occupation of Palestinian land.

Call or email your Members of Congress and demand they co-sponsor the Palestinian Children and Families Act (H.R.2590) to end our financial support of Israel’s ongoing human rights violations of Palestinians.

Let’s be clear, because this subject can feel tricky in Democratic circles. The assertion that criticism of Israel’s ultra-conservative leadership is anti-Semitism is a lie. Calling out human rights violations against Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip does not equate to a call for Israel to cease existing.

But the GOP – and some Democrats – twist the messages together in order to block us as a country from addressing the very real issue of Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian land and denial of Palestinian basic needs. The truth is a large number of Israelis oppose their right wing leadership just as strongly as American progressives.

The Palestinian Children and Families Act is backed by progressive leaders and organizations also fighting for human rights in our own country – including Justice Democrats, Movement 4 Black Lives, IfNotNow, Jews for Racial & Economic Justice, and Detention Watch Network. Because human rights is human rights is human rights.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they co-sponsor and pass the Palestinian Children and Families Act (H.R.2590) to end US aide for an apartheid state that violates international human rights law for millions of Palestinians.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling Republicans to stop standing in the way of saving the planet from climate devastation, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
