Join Us on Sunday to Help Dedicate the MLK Memorial by Organizing to End Aid to Israel!

Greetings everyone! My name is Jody Scholz, and I am a graduate student in International Relations at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences in Ås, Norway. I am writing my master's thesis on the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign in the US, and I'm very excited to be in Washington D.C. this fall interning at the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation. I do hope you will be able to join us this Sunday as we honor Dr. King's message by organizing to end military aid to Israel!

We are so excited for the dedication of the Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial on the National Mall this Sunday, October 16, from 9AM-11AM.
At this historic event, we will remind people that Dr. King stated: “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”

Join us at the dedication to distribute these special flyers and urge people to honor Dr. King’s anti-militarism message by calling on President Obama to end $30 billion in military aid to Israel.
Tens of thousands of people are expected to attend the event, which makes this an amazing opportunity to educate and organize many new people to join us in our quest to end U.S. support for Israeli military occupation and apartheid, and change U.S. policy toward Palestine/ Israel to support freedom, justice, and equality.
Join the US Campaign at 9AM on Sunday morning at the northeast corner of West Potomac Park, on the corner of Independence Ave. and West Basin Drive (marked with a red dot on the map below) to pick up literature and help us organize. If you’d like to join us, please contact US Campaign Steering Committee Co-Chair Felicia Eaves who will be in touch with you to coordinate logistics.
Thank you for helping to make the MLK memorial dedication a day of activism for a just peace!
