Earlier this month, member groups kicked off a week of action around the country. Shortly after the week ended, we asked some of the groups how we did supporting their work. When we reviewed the feedback, one message from Susan Landau, an organizer with Philly BDS, Christian-Jewish Allies Working for Justice in Palestine-Israel, and Jewish Voice for Peace-Philly especially caught our attention:

A huge shout out to the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights for its indispensable role in “Enough is Enough,” our Philadelphia commemoration of the 100-70-50-10 anniversaries of injustice for Palestinians!

The US Campaign’s work is powered by caring, conscientious, and committed people like you. People know we need to educate others, grow our movement, and better link with domestic struggles here at home — but turning that into action requires a different kind of power. Your generous donation today will help us support more national, regional, and local organizing like the recent #Marking50 Week of Action to say Enough!  Susan continued:

US Campaign resources and support streamlined the organizing process into what at times felt akin to a paint-by-numbers activity. Into our event planning process, we plugged well-researched facts and figures, skillfully crafted messaging and compelling logos on informational postcards, media tips, creative hashtags, and social media suggestions. Leading up to our event, the US Campaign sent a promotional email blast announcing our program to their regional list, ensuring a standing-room only crowd.

You probably know how hard and lonely it can be to work for Palestinian rights in the US. Real victories are coming — but still too slowly. Your donation today can help us build national power with persistent and strategic action like Susan describes:

In addition, USCPR connects individuals from groups in cities around the globe through conference calls and network emails in which strategies, actions, and photos are shared. This synergy is an awesome and powerful experience; it highlights that together we are building a movement for justice for Palestinians. Thank you, USCPR!

Thank YOU for making this important work possible. And we can do more of it with your support.
