Take action virtually: 3 things to do now

1. Boost Palestinian voices on social media

Use the hashtag #savesheikhjarrah in your posts/shares on all social media platforms. Listen to this interview on Democracy Now with Mohammed El-Kurd; follow Mohammed and Muna El-Kurd on instagram.

By Thursday, use this toolkit to participate in a virtual sign action against the expulsions and to show up in solidarity this Nakba Day. It includes instructions to make signs, take a photo, and post on social.

2. Demand immediate action from the U.S. government: call your representatives.

Over 200,000 people signed the petition to Secretary of State Tony Blinken, demanding an end to Israel’s illegal evictions of Palestinians and demolitions of their homes. Our JVP Action team is working to push Members of Congress to apply pressure on the U.S. State Department. 15 have already spoken out, but it should be 535.

Follow the up-to-date thread of all the members we’ve seen speak out, and if your representative isn’t on the list, call them immediately. And everyone should call to make sure your representatives support the Palestinian Children and Families Act, which would condition U.S. military aid to Israel. The $3.8 billion a year we send to Israel directly funds Israeli injustice in and beyond Jerusalem. We must shift U.S. policy from protecting Israeli impunity and funding Israeli war crimes to holding Israel accountable.

3. Help our Jewish family face difficult truths

It is our responsibility and mandate to bring in our fellow Jews who are freshly waking up to the horrors of settler violence and dispossession in Jerusalem, and to invite them to the kind of remembering that resists the lies we’ve been fed, creates real solidarity, and prompts powerful action.

Invite your mom, your childhood best friend, and all your cousins to this panel, co-sponsored by JVP and featuring Mohammad El-Kurd, Majd Kayyal, Sandra Tamari, and Sumaya Awad who will unpack the history and ongoing reality of the Nakba. Need more information about the Nakba? Our Facing the Nakba curriculum is designed to educate about the Nakba to Jewish audiences.

WATCH JVP’S STORY

Back in the mid-90s, three young Jewish women realized they could no longer keep silent about Israel’s occupation – and decided to do something about it. Watch their story – our story – here.

GET THE DEADLY EXCHANGE REPORT

Researching the American Israeli Alliance and Jewish Voice for Peace’s report reveals the extent of massive training programs between U.S. law enforcement and Israeli police, military, and the Shin Bet.

End the Deadly Exchange

When US law enforcement trade tactics with the Israeli police and military, Israel deepens its military occupation and the US heightens its violence of policing.

Booking.com: Tell the Truth

Days ago, Booking.com bowed to pro-Israel activists and started describing all of Jerusalem as a “city in Israel” – literally erasing Palestinian East Jerusalem. Let’s get Booking.com to tell the truth: East Jerusalem is occupied territory.

Senators: Investigate Israeli Violence!

No one should be killed for taking part in a peaceful protest. It’s up to us to call on progressive Senators to investigate Israel’s massacre in Gaza that killed over 100 Palestinians wounded 12,000 others.
