In order to end the violence in Israel and Occupied Palestine, we are calling on members of Congress to immediately sign the Ceasefire Now Resolution.
Atrocity does not excuse atrocity. Collective punishment, the targeting of civilians, indiscriminate violence, and genocidal rhetoric are to be condemned, no matter the source. There cannot be double standards for international law and the humane treatment of civilians.
We cannot allow the violence of Hamas’ attack on Israeli civilians to justify a war crime of even greater violence. We cannot allow the rightly condemned terrorism of Hamas, the rightly condemned bloodshed, to provide ideological cover for a massacre of civilians conducted by one of the most well equipped militaries on the planet.
Instead of seeking an end to the violence, however, most members of Congress have instead offered nearly unconditional support to the state of Israel, no matter how high the price that is paid with Palestinian lives.
Representative Cori Bush recently introduced the Ceasefire Now Resolution, which urges the Biden administration to “call for and facilitate de-escalation,” and to “send and facilitate the entry of humanitarian assistance into Gaza.”
There is no path forward to peace while so many are being killed in senseless slaughter.
Please, take action today and urge your member of Congress to co-sponsor the Ceasefire Now Resolution.
Dear Member of Congress,
I am writing today to urge you to sign onto the Ceasefire Now Resolution so that we can bring an end to the violence and chaos in Israel and Occupied Palestine.
This resolution asserts that all human life is precious, and that the targeting of civilians, no matter faith or ethnicity, is a violation of international humanitarian law.
I urge you to take immediate action to protect life and bring and end to this conflict.
