Before leaving DC this month, your Congressional representative squeezed in time to send a "bonus" $225 million in aid to restock Israel's weapons supply.

Will you amplify the outpouring of anger and action across the country to hold Israel accountable? Let your representative know that constituents are outraged: Click here to send your message. 

Through decades of unconditional military, economic and diplomatic support, the US government has enabled the large scale violation of Palestinian human rights by Israel. US unconditional support for Israel has led to the deaths of over 2,000 Palestinians in Gaza in the last 6 weeks, the destruction of hospitals, schools and vital infrastructure, and displacement of refugees made refugees again.  

Click here to tell your representative: Enough is enough, it's time to hold Israel accountable. 

Over the past year, our local chapters have begun building relationships with the Congressional Progressive Caucus to introduce our vital work for justice, human rights and long-term transformation of US policy. As a constituent, we need you to amplify our local organizing work. Tell your representative we are watching them vote for continued US support and funding of Israel's one-sided war of choice, with no end in sight. 

Click here to send your congressional representative the message that their vote to restock Israel's arsenal is an outrage. 

Across the country we've been in the streets with hundreds of thousands of people, rallying to let Gaza live from Boston to San Francisco, putting our bodies in front of warplanes and military contractors, and holding Jewish leaders accountable for their support of Israel's one-sided war of choice. 

Congress has been part of the problem. You can be part of the solution. Join us in taking action, in the streets and in building a movement strong enough to hold our government accountable.
