Take Action Stop the abuse of Palestinian children in Israeli military detention.
Ask your representative to co-sponsor H.R. 4391

Nearly one year ago, Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN) introduced groundbreaking legislation, to prevent U.S. tax dollars from paying for human rights violations against Palestinian children in Israeli military detention.

As the bill marks its one-year anniversary, it is now supported by 30 members of the House. It would be great to add more co-sponsors before the end of this session of Congress! If your representative is already a co-sponsor, please send them a note of thanks. If they have not yet signed on, please ask them to add their name as a co-sponsor of H.R. 4391.

The Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act (H.R. 4391) requires the Secretary of State to certify annually that no funds obligated or expended in the previous year by the United States for assistance to Israel have been used to support prohibited practices under international law. If the Secretary cannot make this certification, a detailed report is required outlining the amount of money spent in violation of the bill and how it was spent.

Human rights groups including B’Tselem and Defense for Children International Palestine have documented the abuse and rights violations to which Palestinian children are subjected in the Israeli military system.


Ask your member of Congress today to support Palestinian children in Israeli military detention, H.R. 4391.
