Thanks so much to everyone who came out to our event "Palestine: Behind the Wall" last Tuesday! It was great to gather people together to discuss how we can take action to hold the U.S. government accountable for its complicity in Israeli human rights violations. (We enjoyed some good food, as well!) The Justice for Palestine committee is currently gathering petition signatures for Congressional representatives to co-sponsor the Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act - if you would like to help gather petition signatures, please contact michaela@peacecouncil.net, or download the petition from our website here: http://www.peacecouncil.net/justice-for-palestine

Other ways to take action:
CALL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS and ask them to co-sponsor the legislation (Capitol switchboard number is 202-224-3121)
Write a Letter to the Editor for your local newspaper
Host an event on Palestinian rights issues with your community group or faith group (if you're part of a group that would be interested in this, we'd love to connect with you!)
