Fund Community Needs or Israel's Misdeeds?

Hey everyone! My name is Ramah Kudaimi and I am pursuing my MA in Conflict Resolution at Georgetown University. I am spending this semester interning at the US Campaign to better understand how grassroots organizing can lead to high-level policy change. Last week we decided to head down to Freedom Plaza here in DC to ask people who were occupying the square in protest of our government’s policies what they thought about U.S. aid to Israel. While talking to people, I was encouraged that almost everyone understood how the United States helps sustain the Israeli occupation and that it was time we supported human rights and justice. Check out the video below as well as our website to see how much of your tax dollars go to Israel and what that money can instead provide for us at home. And make sure to share!
