Find Your Elected Officials: Co-Sponsor H.R. 2590, The Palestinian Children and Families Act

Call your Representatives 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] to co-sponsor H.R. 2590 Defending the Human Rights of Palestinian Children and Families Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act, which ensures that US taxpayer funds are not used by the Israeli government to imprison and torture Palestinian children, steal and destroy Palestinian homes and property, or further annex and steal Palestinian land. The work is as urgent as ever: families in Silwan and Sheikh Jarrah in East Jerusalem and Al Walaja are fighting expulsions and home demolitions right now, during a pandemic, while the Israeli military continues to separate Palestinian children from their families. I urge the [NAME OF REP] to cosponsor H.R. 2590 today. Thank you."

"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] for co-sponsoring H.R. 2590 Defending the Human Rights of Palestinian Children and Families Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act and for supporting Palestinians' rights to safety, dignity, & freedom. By insisting on greater transparency and accountability around U.S. military funding to Israel, we move closer to a world where we divest from harm and invest in justice for all. I hope [NAME OF REP] will continue taking action to support Palestinian rights and defund Israel's separate-and-unequal apartheid system. Thank you."
