Make Your Voice Heard Now: Tell the Biden Administration to make clear they oppose settlement activity and the potential eviction of Palestinians from their homes.
In a recent statement with Churches for Middle East Peace, the PCUSA and other denominations and faith-based organizations called on the Biden Administration to:
- Publicly declare that Israeli settlements are illegal and that the U.S. opposes all settlement activity, including in occupied East Jerusalem.
- Intervene directly with the Israeli Government to ensure the cancellation of all pending eviction orders in East Jerusalem immediately.
- Support Congresswoman Betty McCollum’s (MN) legislation, HR 2590, which calls for greater transparency on how U.S. security assistance to Israel is used, specifically seeking to ensure U.S. taxpayer funds are not used to abuse Palestinian children, annex Palestinian land, or demolish Palestinian homes.
Take Action Today: Call for President Biden and Vice President Harris to help broker an immediate cessation of violence in Israel/Palestine.
The Biden Administration has consistently said that they will center human rights and rule of law in their foreign policy decisions. They must now put these words into action by intervening directly with the Israeli government to end the violence against Palestinians and stop the planned expulsion of families in Sheikh Jarrah. Your voice is critically important. Please act now as we work to push the Biden Administration to play a proactive role in bringing about justice and peace in Jerusalem and throughout Israel/Palestine.
