Dear Marti,

Next Monday, June 25, I’ll be in Washington on Capitol Hill with colleagues and

partners to hold a congressional briefing highlighting H.R. 4391 and the situation

for Palestinian children after the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem.

We need you to help make sure your members of Congress attend.

Please take action now to tell your lawmaker to attend this briefing!

Our latest congressional briefing will examine how persistent grave human rights

violations, systemic impunity, discrimination, and recent U.S. policy decisions, like

relocating the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, impact the lives of Palestinian children

growing up under military occupation.

Here are the details:

Title: H.R. 4391 and the situation for Palestinian children after the U.S. embassy

move to Jerusalem

When: June 25, 2018 at 12:30 pm (light lunch served)

Where: Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2044, 45 Independence Ave SW,

Washington, DC 20515

Last fall, lawmakers introduced the first-ever bill on Palestinian human rights

in Congress,  something the #nowaytotreatachild team spearheaded in 2017.

It now has 27 co-sponsors and we are working to add more every day.

The bill, H.R. 4391, is titled the Promoting Human Rights by

Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act and was introduced

by Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN)  with nine co-sponsors.

It prohibits U.S. tax dollars from supporting human rights violations against

Palestinian children during the course of Israeli military detention.

Send a message to your lawmaker now to tell them to attend the June 25 briefing!

Thank you for all that you do and for helping ensure that your elected officials know

about this briefing.

Best regards,

Brad Parker
