1. 🚨TELL CONGRESS: Demand a #CeasefireNOW!

60 members of Congress have called for a ceasefire. We must demand a PERMANENT and lasting ceasefire now.

Support the Ceasefire NOW resolution led by Rep. Cori Bush, and demand that Congress #StopArmingIsrael.

2. TELL GENOCIDE JOE: You Are Complicit in Genocide

Palestinians are suing Biden for enabling genocide. Demand a CEASEFIRE NOW and an end to U.S. military funding to Israel.


3. Shut It Down for Palestine again on Friday, December 8

NO BUSINESS AS USUAL while our U.S. government and complicit corporations enable genocide! Shut it down.

4. Organize Your Own Protest

Organize a protest to call out your elected officials and complicit corporations. Hold a sit-in, shutdown, pray-in, or birddog based on recent examples.

Use our new Strategies to Shut It Down toolkit.

5. Find more protests:

Find a protest near you. Text and invite all your friends. Ask everyone in attendance to complete one of the above action tools on the spot. Print protest signs to take along.

These protest signs are free to use. You’ll find USCPR protest signs, as well as signs by artists who’ve granted their permission for printing them for protests. Also see the protest art collection

9. Look up: How much of your community’s tax dollars fund Israel’s violence?

Every year, the U.S. government writes Israel a blank check for at least $3.8 billion. With your federal U.S. tax dollars, the Israeli military is bombing Gaza and wiping out entire Palestinian families right now.

Find out how much people in your city pay, and what could be funded instead, on the U.S. Military Funding to Israel map. Demand that Congress #StopArmingIsrael.

Modeled after anti-apartheid organizing in South Africa, BDS tactics are a time-honored strategy to achieve Palestinian rights. See this updated graphic on complicit companies to boycott. Read more.
