Video: 10 Years of Struggle for Justice

This year, contributions from supporters will allow us to plant 2,050 olive trees for Palestinian farming families in 2012.

Thanks to your generosity, the US Campaign will be able to replace almost 25% of the olive trees destroyed by Israel this year.  Your support will also allow us to capitalize on a decade of tireless work, and challenge U.S. support for Israeli occupation and apartheid on an unprecedented scale in 2012.

Above: Our 10th anniversary video retrospective combines a visual sampling of
our past national actions with a narrative of our coalition's growth
from mere concepts in 2001, voiced by members of the US Campaign staff
and Steering Committee.
The US Campaign and our coalition of 380 member organizations have come a long way in the past decade.  Each staff member, intern, and volunteer at the US Campaign is honored to be a part of this movement, hundreds of thousands strong, tirelessly working to change U.S policy in support of Palestinian human rights.

While we have made tremendous progress in the past decade, Palestinians simply cannot afford to wait another ten years for the United States to uphold their freedom and equality.

Your contribution today will send a message that Palestinian human rights are non-negotiable.

Your support will help us take that message far and wide, from the halls of Capitol Hill to the board rooms of major corporations.  Your contributions enable us to educate those who don’t know better, and organize those who do.

Please take a few minutes to watch the video above and see how we’ve challenged U.S. support for Israel’s occupation over the last decade.  And if you haven’t already, please make a contribution to help us redouble our efforts to end decades of Israeli occupation and Palestinian dispossession.
