Hi Staffer, thank you for reading this. I know that offices have been inundated with letters lately, and it must be exhausting to read and sort through. I get tired writing them at times, so I know that's gotta take a toll on the other side. You truly feel like the only person that is left to hear me and the rest of the American people. Our country is financing & participating in war crimes- if you haven't taken a moment to read or watch recent updates from the UN, I recommend it. This isn't the spirit of our country- at least, it was never supposed to be. I ask that you join another staffer walkout. You doing so speaks volumes to the government in a way that I have been unheard. They aren't listening to us- I know you see firsthand evidence. Know that if you chose to, I support you, and if there's a way to do that beyond this letter I will do that, too. As for your boss, this is my message: I ask you to: - Call for an immediate ceasefire. A "humanitarian pause" is completely insufficient to address the dire needs of Palestinians - Withdraw all U.S. troops in the area sent to assist Israel - Permanently end all monetary and military contributions to Israel- whether that form is financing through my tax dollars, shared intelligence, provision of military weapons and technology, or any other type of assistance that directly or indirectly supports their genocidal and apartheid state - Give all financial contributions allocated to Israel to humanitarian relief in all of occupied Palestine to to help them rebuild, care for the sick & injured, bury the dead with dignity, and ensure all of their basic needs are taken care of and are unable to be restricted by any occupying power now and in the future - Call for and do everything in your power for the immediate end of apartheid, occupation, and ethnic cleansing of Palestine - Continue to speak out against the disturbing rise of antisemitism, but also condemn the same rise of Islamophobia tearing our country apart - Not sponsor, author, or otherwise assist in passing legislation that aims to directly or indirectly target Palestinians - Protect my freedom of speech and actively work against any and all efforts of censorship and governmental control of the Internet - Restore my right to speak freely and be protected against anti-BDS laws, discrimination, targeting, or other forms of harassment for speaking out against a government and political ideology - Do whatever possible to support both Israelis and Palestinians in efforts for real and long-lasting peace, safety, freedom, and equal rights for both groups.
