USCPR National Conference Highlight: Not On Our Dime! Session
Nobody should get tax credits for bankrolling colonialism. Now, we’re pushing to stop New York State’s complicity in so-called “charities” funneling hundreds of millions of dollars to illegal Israeli settlements.
Welcome to the Not On Our Dime! campaign, based on the first-of-its-kind legislation introduced by Assembly member Zohran K. Mamdani to stop New York State from enabling violent Israeli land theft. USCPR is proud to be part of the coalition behind it.
“Don’t tell me it’s unthinkable to demand this bare minimum,” said Diala Shamas, Senior Staff Attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), during a powerful rally of 500+ people in New York. “Don’t tell us that it’s pie in the sky to say that war crimes are not charitable.”
This is only the beginning of this key campaign, and only the beginning of numerous possibilities in our continual fight for justice.
At the USCPR National Conference in Houston this fall, you’ll get to hear directly from the organizers behind this campaign, who will share their inside learnings. The Not On Our Dime! plenary session will feature speakers like Diala Shammas of CCR, Sumaya Awad from Adalah Justice Project, and Tarek Ismail and Aber Kawas from USCPR’s Steering Committee.
From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free. We’ll use every avenue possible to end U.S. complicity and push for justice.
Onward to liberation.
