The Muslim American Society is urging all organizations of conscience to support and sign on to Congresswoman Betty McCollum’s (DFL-MN) legislation “Defending the Human Rights of Palestinian Children and Families Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act,” H.R. 2590.
By signing on to H.R. 2590 which has been endorsed by various organizations and Congressional representatives, we are taking a stand in holding our own government accountable for funding Israeli military occupation and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.
H.R. 2590 seeks to “promote and protect the human rights of Palestinians living under Israeli military occupation and to ensure that United States taxpayer funds are not used by the Government of Israel to support the military detention of Palestinian children, the unlawful seizure, appropriation, and destruction of Palestinian property and forcible transfer of civilians in the West Bank, or further annexation of Palestinian land in violation of international law.”
Actions to Take:
- We hope to get 500 organizational sponsors to this legislation. Please urge any organization you are affiliated with to join.
- Call your elected representatives to co-sponsor and support this legislation. Find your representative here.
