How Would You End U.S. Aid to Israel?

Your Opinions Will Strengthen Our Campaign to End Aid to Israel


Ever since our founding conference in 2002, challenging U.S. military aid to Israel has been a central component of our work. 

And in 2007, when the United States promised Israel $30 billion in additional military aid from 2009 to 2018, we started our ongoing organizing campaign to end U.S. weapons transfers to Israel.

Since then, we've distributed nearly 3,000 packets to volunteers in all 50 states and 1,125 cities to empower them to educate and organize people in their communities to end U.S. aid to Israel. 

We've distributed hundreds of thousands of postcards, flyers, posters, stickers and petitions. 

We've set up interactive websites that show the moral and financial costs of arming Israel to oppress Palestinians. 

We've taken out ads in national publications and worked with member groups on mass transit ads.

We've written a policy paper on ending U.S. aid to Israel and published articles to that effect in publications read by millions.

There’s no doubt that together we've raised awareness and helped change the discourse about this issue, but we’re still a long way from changing actual policies. 

Every so often it’s important to step back and ask ourselves how we’re doing and whether we are on the right path toward our goal of ending U.S. aid to Israel?

But we need your help to do that

Could you please take a few minutes to fill out this survey about our organizing campaign to end U.S. military aid to Israel?

This is your chance to tell us what you think of our materials and resources, the various components of our campaign, and give us your best ideas for improving our work.

Your opinions will go directly into helping us shape our near-term plans for our campaigning to end U.S. military aid to Israel.

As a small thank you for taking the time to give us your opinions, we’ll send you this bumper sticker in the mail.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.
