If the Zoom room is full, join us here:

Over 170 days into the genocide in Gaza, we are overwhelmed with sorrow and rage.

There are no words to describe the devastating pain of the last five months, in which the Israeli military has killed over 33,000 Palestinians in Gaza, including more than 14,000 children. The highest court in the world has named Israel’s actions as plausibly a genocide. And the U.S. government is actively supporting the Israeli military as it wreaks devastation on the over 2 million Palestinians in Gaza.

It’s at this moment that we have come together as a political community in our daily half-hour to take action, Monday through Friday, for the past six months.

Join us as we take collective action to demand an immediate end to the genocide, a lasting ceasefire and an end to Israeli siege, apartheid, occupation, and oppression of Palestinians.



Contact the White House, your Senators and Representative and urge them to:
1) Publicly call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza. Urge your Representative to cosponsor H.Res. 786.
2) End the siege on Gaza
3) Vote NO on any additional funding or weapons to Israel that comes to a vote
4) End US taxpayer dollars and weapons to Israel
