Not 1, Not 2, Not 3 but FOUR Members of Congress

In less than a month, AMP will host its first-ever virtual Palestine Advocacy Days with Members of Congress, and we want you to join us . From September 14-18, we are organizing intensive training sessions led by experts in political advocacy and former Capitol Hill staffers to empower you to be a dynamic citizen lobbyist for Palestinian rights.

We are hosting a public plenary session with Members of Congress, including Reps. Betty McCollum (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Donald Payne Jr. (D-NJ), and Debbie Dingell (D-MI) to learn how we can advocate for justice both here in the US and in Palestine.  

And we’ll set up meetings for you and other constituents with your elected officials so that you can educate them about the need to support brand-new legislation to advance Palestinian rights.
