The purpose of AIPAC-sponsored trips is to whitewash Israel’s human rights violations and continue unchecked U.S. financial and diplomatic support for Israel — all at the expense of Palestinian rights.
Whatever the reason — opposing AIPAC's agenda, not taking PAC money, not traveling this year, scheduling issues — the fewer Congress members that travel with AIPAC, the better odds for peace in Israel/Palestine and with Iran.
Three actions to take:
- Use the CALL CONGRESS tab below if you are a constituent of one of the freshmen Democrats planning to travel with AIPAC — Reps. Cisneros, Davids, Dean, Delgado, Fletcher, Garcia, Haaland, Katie Hill, Mike Levin, McAdams, McBath, Morelle, Pappas, Rose, Rouda, Shalala, Stanton, Haley Stevens, Trahan, Wild, Trone, Wild— or one of the freshmen Democrats who are undecided (see the full list here).
- Use the EMAIL CONGRESS tab below to send emails now all freshmen Democrats: to thank those who are skipping the AIPAC trip and appeal to the freshmen Dems who are traveling with AIPAC or are undecided.
- Tweet at all the freshmen Democrats in the Congressional Progressive Caucus planning to, or undecided about, traveling this August to Israel with AIPAC. Use the TWEET @CONGRESS tab below to tell them: you can't be progressive and not support Palestinian rights!
