Day of Action: Restore Aid to Palestine

February 9, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

The first event in our CMEP Journeys programming is a Day of Action calling on the Biden Administration to restore US funding to UNRWA and bilateral assistance to humanitarian programs in the West Bank and Gaza. The Biden Administration has affirmed its plan to reinstate this aid, but we need to raise our voices now to ensure they move beyond words and take swift action to reinstate this critical aid.

We aim to get the Biden Administration’s attention with a unified focus on tweets calling on them to reinstate funding to UNRWA and bilateral assistance as soon as possible. There will also be an Action Alert for people who do not have Twitter available on Tuesday, February 9.

Let us know if you will #CMEPRaiseYourVoice with us!

Then Follow CMEP on Twitter Today!
