The Palestinian Rights Virtual Dinner Club

The Palestinian Rights Virtual Dinner Club

The Palestinian Rights Virtual Dinner Club is a series of virtual gatherings where you come together over Zoom, Google Hangouts, Skype, etc. with your community to share a meal, learn about an issue relating to Palestinian rights, and raise funds to support the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR) programs that are driving change on the same issue.

Change begins at home. Whether you’re gathering with family, friends, or fellow activists, the Palestinian Rights Virtual Dinner Club is a unique opportunity to learn together, build solidarity, and plug directly into the movement for freedom, justice, and equality for the Palestinian people.

Whether it's an iftar, birthday celebration, or casual get together—If you're looking for a way to support Palestinian rights, you don't need an occasion.

Why Should I Host a Palestinian Rights Virtual Dinner Club?

The coronavirus pandemic is turning lives and entire countries upside down, and the movement for freedom, justice, and equality for the Palestinian people is not unaffected. In-person organizing is on hold so we can protect and care for our communities, but the need to fight for Palestinian rights is more urgent than ever.

The Palestinian Rights Virtual Dinner Club is one way that we can push forward for freedom, justice, and equality together. This virtual dinner club is an opportunity to deepen support for Palestinian rights close to home, among your family and friends.

Hosting a Palestinian Rights Virtual Dinner Club is a powerful—and easy—way to take action.

Sign up here to host a virtual dinner club and automatically create your fundraising page. After you sign up, we’ll email you a link to your personal fundraising page and instructions for how to choose a fundraising goal, customize your page, and reach out to your community about contributing!

Make sure you share your personal fundraising link with your community, family, and friends via social media, email, and virtual dinner club invitations (more on those below). If you personalize it with photos and a story of why you’re hosting the Palestinian Rights Virtual Dinner Club, your community will see how close to your heart the cause of freedom, justice, and equality is.

Questions? As soon as you sign up, a member of the USCPR team will reach out!

The Palestinian Rights Virtual Dinner Club is all about learning about issues impacting our communities and taking action together! The following theme will help you and your guests dive into the intersections of Palestinian rights and social justice issues here in the U.S.—a crucial part of solidarity organizing. Your personalized hosting guide (see Step 3) will include a tailored presentation on the topic with targeted actions that you and your guests can take on the spot!

DEFUNDING THE MILITARY DETENTION OF PALESTINIAN CHILDREN

Learn about the detention of Palestinian children by the Israeli military, exciting legislation in Congress that addresses it, and connections with mass incarceration and immigrant detention in the U.S.

Our tax dollars should be funding safety, not harm. Instead of providing healthcare and services to our communities, the U.S. government continues to subsidize Israeli apartheid with $3.8 billion in military funding to Israel each year, and spend billions on locking Black and brown people up in the U.S. In particular, 183 Palestinian children are separated from their families and being subject to abuse and dangerous, unsanitary conditions in Israeli military detention—abuses being funded by our tax dollars. Take action with your community and learn about how USCPR is advocating on the issue!

Once you have your fundraising page set up, kick it off by making a donation of $25 or more on the same page. “Seeding” your fundraiser will show your community that you are committed to the cause! Once you make the $25+ gift, we’ll send you a personalized hosting guide with everything you need to put on your first Palestinian Rights Virtual Dinner Club.

The hosting guide includes fundraising and facilitation tips, as well as:

  • A Paperless Post invitation template so you can invite your dinner club guests in style with a custom evite!
  • A Powerpoint/Google Slides package tailored to your theme with facts about the issue, discussion questions, actions to take together, and more!
  • A Zoom background to add a pop of color to your virtual dinner
  • Printable fill-in-the-blank signs for you and your guests to have a fun photo-op at the end

And more!
