Ask your representative to join U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum and Christian faith leaders at a congressional briefing on Wednesday, Nov. 20, Universal Children's Day. The briefing will call attention to the need to protect the rights of Palestinian children who are detained, prosecuted, and incarcerated by the Israeli military in the occupied Palestinian territory.
The session will also highlight the “Promoting Human Rights for Palestinian Children Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act” (H.R. 2407), which prohibits any U.S. taxpayer funds from contributing to the military detention, interrogation, abuse, or ill-treatment of children by any country, including Israel.
Take action today. Contact your representatives and senators to ask them to join the briefing and to support H.R. 2407 or companion legislation in the Senate to hold Israel responsible for its abuses of Palestinian children's rights.
