Legislative Action Page

July 26th, 2012

Take action today to help us change U.S. policy in support of freedom, human rights, and legal accountability:

1. Email your Members of Congress.

2. Call your Member of Congress
using our talking points.

3. Tweet your Members of Congress using our sample tweets.

4. Write a letter to the editor of your local paper.  Check out our resource on writing letters to the editor and our site www.aidtoisrael.org to see how much money your community is paying to provide weapons to Israel.  Compare those costs to local unmet domestic needs and make the connection for your community.

5. Attend an event hosted by your Members of Congress during August or set up an in-district meeting.  If you attend an event, use our talking points and sample tweets to ask your Members of Congress why they continue to support unconditional military aid to Israel.

Sample Event Question:
'Why are Colorado taxpayers  spending $527,942,000 on weapons for Israel, including refueling tankers to bomb Iran, when we don't even have enough tankers to put out fires threatening our own cities?  Shouldn't we put out fires at home instead of lighting more in the Middle East?'

6. Chip in to help support our work.

*Feel free to email me at cdcnetwork@endtheoccupation.org  if you need help setting up a meeting with your Members of Congress or finding an event near you.
