Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another opportunity to make your voice heard. Progressive Secretary is “Activism Made Easy.”

Our letter supports a campaign by the American Friends Service Committee (Quaker action for a just world). 

It asks Congress to support H.Res. 751, a resolution that “recognizes the value and importance of the work being done by the six Palestinian civil society organizations defending the human rights of a vulnerable and at-risk Palestinian population.” and “condemns the decision by the Israeli government to designate six prominent Palestinian human rights and civil society groups as terrorist organizations.”


We will send your email message to your House member.


The targeted organizations include
Defense for Children International – Palestine, Al-Haq, Addameer, the Bisan Center for Research & Development, the Union of Agricultural Work Committees, the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees, and the Union of Health Work Committees.

On August 18, the Israeli military shut down the offices of seven Palestinian human rights and civil society groups. In October 2021, the Israeli Defense Minister declared six of these organizations “terrorist organizations.”

These groups work closely with the United Nations and international nongovernmental organization partners. They provide important information to U.S. State Department and E.U. officials and vital services to Palestinians.

Israel alleges that these organizations are somehow associated with terrorism. U.N., E.U., and U.S. officials have thoroughly investigated previous Israeli accusations linking these organizations to terrorist groups and have not found any credible evidence of these allegations.

Please speak out and support H. Res. 751 — a resolution that condemns Israel’s criminalization of these respected Palestinian human rights and civil society groups.

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
