Summary

In this time of crisis, your support allows Rebuilding Alliance to engage House and Senate offices to intervene for Palestinian safety. To prevent demolitions of homes and schools, RA responds fast, case by case, especially when there's only 96 hours to mobilize. We invite senior staff of ALL House and Senate offices, all parties, to schedule Zoom briefings w experts. This is not lobbying since it is not about legislation - we engage constituents to request their elected officials' intervention.

Challenge

Over 10,000 Palestinians in Jerusalem are at risk of losing their homes. In the West Bank, >16,000 Palestinian families have demolition orders incl. 56 schools. Now Israeli military orders give only 96 hrs before demolition & no notice for confiscations. As settlements expand, Palestinian communities face violence & land theft. The night raid arrests of children are heartbreaking. U.S. Congress will intervene case by case, privately or publicly, but only when constituents ask.

Solution

What does it take to do Contact Congress Campaigns for Palestinian rights? It starts when families send us their pressing request - this happens weekly. Our next step is to talk with their lawyer to get the facts. We recruit a team of expert speakers from Palestine, Israel, and the U.S. to do Zoom briefings w Congress each day. Constituents email and call Congress, then join the Zoom calls - RA's team pulls this together. Please help us ramp up to hold more Contact Congress Campaigns each month.

Long-Term Impact

In 2008, Rebuilding Alliance brought Al Aqaba's Mayor Haj Sami to Congress. Everyone emailed their Senators & Reps to keep Al Aqaba standing. That worked - for 12 yrs, no demolition orders in this Area C village in Firing Zone 900 as 60 families built new homes. In Jan, a settler judge ruled to demolish a young couple's house - but in Nov/22 the village's appeal against further demolitions succeeded! The Israeli Army backtracked on a 96 hour demolition order. Families will stay in their homes.
