Summary

Rebuilding Alliance's groundbreaking work engages Congressional offices to act for Palestinian safety. From preventing home demolitions to urging the humanitarian release of a child prisoner, to arranging Leahy Law testimony, Rebuilding Alliance is working alongside Palestinian families to brief Congress, case by case. Our team brought constituents to over 200 Contact Congress Zoom-briefings since Jan. Help us staff-up to press Congress to assure W.B. entry to Palestinian Americans & academics.

Challenge

Over 10,000 Palestinians living in Jerusalem are at risk of losing their homes. In the West Bank, 16,000 Palestinian families have demolition orders, with many military orders giving only 96 hrs before demolition & no notice for confiscations. As settlement expansion increases, Palestinian communities face violence & land theft. The targeting of Palestinian civil society orgs by Israel, night raids, and arrests of children are serious concerns. U.S. Congress does intervene when constituents ask.

Solution

What does it take to do a Contact Congress Campaign for Palestinian rights? A focused, pressing need from families. A letter from their lawyer to forward through Congress. Expert speakers from Palestine, Israel, and the U.S. doing four 30 minute Zoom-briefing ea. day. Constituents who email and call Congress - RA's advocacy team pulls this together. Please help us coach constituents to fill out forms, teaching them to ask their Rep & Senators to call State Dept for help to travel to Palestine.

Long-Term Impact

Rebuilding Alliance began Contact Congress requests in 2008 when we brought Al Aqaba Village's Mayor to Congress. Everyone emailed their Senators & Reps, who called the State Dept. & the Israeli Embassy to keep Al Aqaba standing. That worked - for 12 yrs no demolition orders in this Area C village in Firing Zone 900. In Jan, a settler judge ruled to demolish a young couple's home - RA brings Congress back to show what peace looked like, and ask their help to keep this village safe and standing.
