Organizing for Palestinian Children's Rights in Illinois' 9th District
RSVP to join us on Sunday, December 9th at 2:00 pm, in Evanston to discuss our efforts to urge Representative Jan Schakowsky of the 9th Congressional District to co-sponsor H.R. 4391, the Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act, a bill that would prohibit U.S. aid to Israel from subsidizing the Israeli military's systematic mistreatment of Palestinian children in military detention - including torture, solitary confinement and separation from parents and lawyers. 

In response to our outreach and organizing, Rep. Schakowsky says she is "deeply concerned about the treatment of Palestinian minors who are detained by Israeli police or military" and that "such treatment is inexcusable" - but has refrained from cosponsoring the bill because she is concerned that "necessary security aid to Israel could be cut."

She has been a progressive leader on many issues in the past - at this political crossroads, we need her to be a champion for Palestinian children too. 

UNFORTUNATELY, THIS LOCATION WILL NOT BE WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE. We will be organizing more events in the area in accessible locations.
