A USCPR resource about H.R. 2407, the Promoting Human Rights for Palestinian Children Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act is featured in The Nation’s weekly “Take Action Now” digest, along with USCPR’s grassroots congressional advocacy guide.

GOT SOME TIME?

Representative Betty McCollum has introduced legislation in the House that would aim to prohibit US funds from being used for the “military detention, interrogation, abuse, or ill-treatment” of children anywhere and would authorize funds to monitor human-rights abuses and provide physical, psychological, and emotional rehabilitation to Palestinian child victims of Israel’s military-detention system. Read up on the act and call your representative to ask him or her to support it.

READY TO DIG IN?

Shifting the administration’s entrenched opposition to Palestinian rights will take dedicated grassroots organizing. Use this action guide from the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights to learn how you can help mobilize support in Congress for justice and equality for the Palestinian people.
