An open letter to the President & U.S. Congress

21,000 children in Gaza have been missing since 10/7. 4,000 are believed to be trapped under rubble. Families are digging at mass grave sites trying to find their children's bodies after exhausting all other means to try and find them alive. Gaza is a mass graveyard for children. Those who have survived so far live with the unknown if their child's body is in the mass graves beneath their feet. Some children could still be saved and reunited with their living family members if there was an immediate, permanent ceasefire. But, Netanyahu's recent statement proves what we've already known this entire time. He will not stop the "war" even if a ceasefire is agreed to. The Israeli government cannot be negotiated with. Philippe Lazzarini, head of UNRWA, has advised that, “Gaza has been decimated. Children are dying of malnutrition and dehydration, while food and clean water wait in trucks." The fact a man-made famine, that is slowly murdering children and adults through starvation, while tons of food and water are so close should shock the conscience of the world. Tons of aid is just sitting because Israel will not allow them to cross. Since Israel crossed the last lifeline, the Rafah crossing, the famine has only accelerated. I demand that you:  – Hold Israel accountable for a permanent, immediate ceasefire, their violations of the Genocide Convention, and gross human rights violations by any means necessary – Call for the immediate end of Israel’s occupation and apartheid and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace – Secure the immediate release and safety of all Palestinians who have been abducted and held captive by Israel, including those whose indefinite detention began prior to 10/7 – Permanently end all monetary, diplomatic, and military aid given to Israel and enforce Leahy Law – Reallocate all funds given to Israel and commit additional resources for ongoing humanitarian relief for Palestinians starting with immediately resuming funding of UNRWA – Immediately withdraw all U.S. troops, military assets, and all other assets deployed throughout the Middle East and cease all actions that further escalate a larger regional conflict – Pass legislation that voids all anti-BDS laws at the federal level – Vote no on H.R. 7521 and any similar legislation proposed
