Palestine Advocacy Day and Training 2019
Date(s) - 04/05/2019 - 04/08/2019
WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
Come for intensive training in political engagement and community mobilization, and a day of lobbying on Capitol Hill! Young leaders and activists will learn the skills they need to lead campaigns in their communities, engage elected officials, and advocate for the rights of Palestinians!
The event is open to all who seek justice in Palestine and agree to the following principles:
1) Israel’s occupation must end
2) The right of return for Palestinian refugees
3) Equal Rights for all Palestinians
4) Supporting the Call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions
The new session of Congress began amid what is now the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. Rather than focusing on the more than 800,000 federal employees who are suffering without pay, Republican senators spent the last week trying to pass S.1., the first bill of the year, to suppress and punish Americans for exercising their right to boycott Israel. Thanks to your efforts—and those of our many allies around the country—lawmakers got the message loud and clear that their constituents won’t stand for any attempts to stifle and suppress free speech.
But we know the fight isn’t over and that these unconstitutional and anti-Palestinian bills will continue to creep up this year. In April, AMP is holding its largest Palestine Advocacy & Training yet—with funds committed to hosting and training 500 advocates in Washington, D.C. For a small registration fee, you’ll get three nights hotel and meals covered, full training in legislative advocacy by policy experts and DC insiders, and a day of lobbying your three representatives on Capitol Hill.
