The U.S. budget is immoral. It gives exorbitant amounts of money for militarism, while underfunding needed programs in our communities.

Support Rep. McCollum’s Bill, H.R.2590, to Protect Palestinians.

Rep. McCollum’s bill will ensure that U.S. tax dollars are not used by Israel to detain Palestinian children, destroy Palestinian homes, or steal Palestinian land. Israel imprisons around 700 Palestinian children a year; it routinely destroys Palestinian homes in the West Bank, especially East Jerusalem, leaving thousands of Palestinians homeless; and it illegally annexes more and more Palestinian land and water. All of this is being funded by our taxes!

Instead of investing in our healthcare, education, and the environment, our government is funding Israel’s oppression of the Palestinian people. This conflicts with our values and hurts us all. Our hearts are with the Palestinian people. Our nation’s budget should not go to detain more Palestinian children, destroy more Palestinian homes, or steal more Palestinian land.
