This Ad Will Get the President's Attention

Help Put Accountability on Obama’s Second Term Agenda

President Obama will be inaugurated on Monday and we've got an excellent opportunity to influence the policy agenda for his second term right away.

We’re teaming up with member group Jewish Voice for Peace to publish this full-page ad in the inaugural edition of a must-read publication for every elected official, calling on the United States to hold Israel accountable for committing human rights abuses of Palestinians with U.S. weapons in violation of U.S. law.

But we need to raise $4,000 within the next 24 hours in order to publish this ad. Can you help by donating $25, $50, $100 or any amount today?

Our ad features recent civil society calls for holding Israel accountable for its misuse of U.S. military aid against Palestinians, including our combined delivery of more than 70,000 petition signatures to the Obama administration!

Help us magnify the impact of these petition signatures by placing this high-profile ad in a prominent D.C. publication.

This ad is just one of many things we’re doing around the inauguration to organize to change U.S. policy toward Israel and the Palestinians to support human rights, international law and equality.

Already dozens of people have signed up to help us organize on MLK/Inauguration Day to end U.S. aid to Israel. Teams of volunteers will be distributing these flyers on the National Mall and collecting signatures on postcards to the president.

Will you be in Washington, D.C. on Monday, January 21? If so, please sign up to volunteer to help us organize that day. We’ll provide you with all the training and materials you’ll need.

Also, be sure to join us on Saturday, January 19, at member group Progressive Democrats of America’s Progressive Central: The Peoples’ Inauguration. Afterwards, we’ll be heading to Farragut Square for a rally and march to the White House organized by member group Jewish Voice for Peace-DC calling for “No Blank Check for Israel!"

Thanks for helping us to set the policy agenda for President Obama’s second term in office and stepping up our campaign to hold Israel accountable.
