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:

  1. 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)
  2. 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.
  3. 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!

See the full list here of freshmen Dems going to Israel with AIPAC, undecided, and skipping the trip.

    I object to this AIPAC propaganda trip, offering US Freshman Congress Members an opportunity to be influenced to possibly committ treason by supporting Israel over the American people’s best interest.

    AIPAC relies on swaying political leaders with limited knowledge of the true history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in order to push one-sided policies by the US Government, to the detriment of the Palestinian people, US interests, and ultimately the Israelis themselves. I urge you to seek the truth as the other side sees it before taking a policy stance.

    This ACTION is not anti-semitic, it is pro Palestinian, anti racist, anti apartheid, pro peace and 2 state solution for Israel.

    Thank you, Code Pink, for this opportunity. I revised the shell letter extensively and was glad to do so in the name of my adopted Palestinian people who suffer beyond any measurable measure at the satanic impulses of militant/political Zionism. Palestine Is Still THE Issue!

    Foreign states have no right to buy our congress members. That sounds like treason to me so the public has decided that participation as an audience member at AIPAC conference are not candidates for serving in our government.

    I also edited the email to request that the candidates DO consider attending the Khalil Gibran Spirit of Humanity Awards Gala presented by the Arab American Institute Foundation – 501©3 nonprofit, not a PAC or a lobby…

    How can one call us a democracy if running for office requires a stamp of approval from a foreign agent, AIPAC, acting on behalf of Israel and its brutal occupation and ethnic cleansing of Palestine? This madness must end now and support for Palestinians rights to exist be our primary concern. Any candidate who sells their soul to AIPAC is most certainly not getting my vote and i will actively assist in campaigning against such a candidate.

    How come Marianne Williamson was not mentioned or listed as one of the candidates the letter would be sent to. I would imagine she would be one that we would most support due to her positions on peace and disarmament and foreign policy in general. Please read her position statements and then include her in your next actions and emails.
