Find Your Elected Officials: Demand an End to Medical Apartheid

Call your Representatives and Senators today:

 

"Hello -

My name is [FIRST AND LAST NAME], and I’m a constituent from [CITY AND STATE].  I’m calling today to ask [NAME OF REP/SENATOR] to support policies that end vaccine apartheid both in the US and in Palestine. First, demand that the Israeli government fulfill its obligation under international law to provide the COVID-19 vaccine for the Palestinian people. While Israelis receive the vaccine, Palestinians are denied access and are going into lockdown with another COVID-19 surge as a result. I urge the [NAME OF REP/SENATOR] to demand that the Israeli government provide the vaccine to Palestinians. Second, here in the US we need to use this pandemic moment to pass life-affirming policies, such as those in the Movement for Black Lives' COVID-19 policy platform, including healthcare and housing for all, and I hope [NAME OF REP/SENATOR] will take real action on these issues. Thank you."

 

If you are contacting any of the following offices, thank them for taking action on Palestinian vaccine access:

 

"Hello -

My name is [FIRST AND LAST NAME], and I’m a constituent from [CITY AND STATE]. I am calling to thank [NAME OF REP/SENATOR] for speaking out to affirm Palestinians' right to healthcare and vaccine access. This issue remains incredibly urgent as Palestinians go into lockdown with another COVID-19 surge. As taxpayers, we send nearly $4 billion in military funding to Israel every year, and Congress has a unique responsibility to demand that Israel fulfill its obligations under international law. I also believe we need to use this pandemic moment to pass life-affirming policies here in the US, such as those in the Movement for Black Lives' COVID-19 policy platform, including healthcare and housing for all, and I hope [NAME OF REP/SENATOR] will take real action on these issues. Thank you."
