Help strengthen the growing movement to change U.S. policy toward Israel//Palestine, and to support human rights, international law, and equaliy. U.S Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation member groups will discuss and vote upon proposals and initiatives to advance our growing coalition and to move our work forward.
The United States has agreed to provide Israel with $30 billion in military aid over the next 10 years. Join us as panelists discuss the vital unmet domestic needs this $30 billion could support instead.
The US Campaign is honored to present Congressman Brian Baird (D-WA) with the “Courage in Congress” award for his activism and work for peace and justice in Palestine. Rep. Baird will be delivering a keynote address after dinner, followed by a performance by local hip-hop artists, The Recipe.
