The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) is urging all our members to continue standing up against Israeli apartheid. More than ever before, there has been increasing awareness and solidarity with the Palestinian cause. This is because all over social media, people like you have been uplifting and centering Palestinian voices and organizations. Please continue doing so; the narrative is shifting and we need to build on the momentum.
Palestinians need your help. Please continue contacting your representatives and demanding that Congress stop funding apartheid. Already, our government funds Israeli apartheid using $3.8 billion a year of our tax money. Not only that, but as Palestinians continue to be murdered at the hands of the Israeli military forces, our government has proposed an additional $735 million arms sale. This arms sale must not pass and all aid to Israel must be conditioned on their abidance by international law and human rights.
Other actions you can take include but are not limited to:
Host an action at the Israeli consulate or embassy in your region
Hold a protest or vigil for Palestinians killed by Israeli terror
Make a public commitment to Palestinian liberation and BDS (Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions)
Call on your government to place sanctions on Israel.
ADC will continue to stand in solidarity with our Palestinian brothers and sisters in Palestine and in the diaspora until Palestinian freedom and self-determination are achieved. Be on the lookout for future action alerts and updates on the situation in Palestine and follow us on social media; @adc on Twitter and @adcnational on Instagram.
