18 local events with US Congress members where you can advocate for Palestine!

Upcoming local events with your Congress member – CA, CO, IA, MN, NJ, NM, PA, TN, TX, WA, WI – a perfect opportunity to advocate for Palestine! (Image from a mock town hall meeting for U.S. Rep. Bill Flores February 22, 2017.)

Attend a local event with your legislator, where you can ask a question, share some info, and hand out fliers calling for justice for Palestinians! A few are tomorrow.

Below are upcoming local events with Congress members. If your district is listed here, please attend! What you can do:

Ask your rep where he/she stands on Palestine. For example:

Do they oppose annexation of the West Bank?

Do they support H.R.2407? (Have they cosponsored yet? – If not, why not?)

Do they support cutting aid to Israel – or at least making it conditional?

Give your rep some materials on Palestine so they can get educated.

Hand out some fliers to the audience.

Here are the local events we’ve heard about. Please speak up for justice!
