Summary

All visas now in place, help bring Palestinian children to speak to Congress in Feb 2019 to describe what peace means to them. They come from West Bank villages facing demolition and from Gaza. This fourth #ICareAboutPeace children's briefing educates Congress and is not lobbying. We ask Congress to make two calls to keep their communities standing, restore US aid, and keep children safe. This briefing has been one of the most effective ways to stop the demolition of Palestinian villages.

Challenge

The Gov't of Israel is warning Palestinian communities, including 44 schools, that they will be demolished for lack of unattainable building permits. The US Government has ended aid for UN schools, food aid, and medical care. Congress promises to help constituents resolve urgent issues with U.S. agencies, but constituents must know to ask for assistance (not lobbying). Your support will bring children to Congress and also ask constituents to urge Congress to meet them.

Solution

The children's speeches describing what peace means have been the most effective advocacy we've seen of the over 330 briefings with Congressional staff, in person & over the phone, that Rebuilding Alliance has held on this issue. We're working to bring children from Gaza to this 4th #ICareAboutPeace briefing to Congress with their visions of peace, and experts to meet with the State Dept. and the NSC. We hope to restore aid in this time of need and keep Palestinian villages standing.

Long-Term Impact

When children make Pinwheels for Peace with parents or teachers, especially in times of crisis, the children are deeply reassured. Adults find this life-changing... it reminds them of their responsibility to help make the children's dreams real. The long-term impact of bringing the children and their pinwheels to Congress will be to keep families fed, keep villages standing, and build thriving communities, measured in the health of their children, the ease of the parents, and a growing economy.
