The Palestine Campaign seeks to educate and advocate on behalf of Palestinian civil and human rights. Imagine facing militarized checkpoints on the way to work, denial of water access, having your home bulldozed, legalized second-class treatment, even being denied access to vaccines. The U.S. actively supports the Israeli government’s actions, despite the fact that, for example, in November 2020, 163 nations in the UN General Assembly voted to end Israel’s occupation of UN recognized Palestinian lands. We welcome activists at all levels of advocacy: brand new, been organizing for years, etc.
U.S. legislators of BOTH major parties take donations from weapons makers, while over 50% of our yearly Discretionary Budget is spent an over-sized military and 800+ bases worldwide. Meanwhile schools, healthcare and our infrastructure crumble and community health and wellness slip by the day. Join CAPA to divest from the Pentagon, disarm nuclear weapons programs, and end a foreign policy of “full spectrum dominance.”
As ocean levels increase, swaths of the planet dry up, and extreme storms batter population centers, the danger and possibility of conflict around the world rises. CAPA recognizes the relation between climate change and the future of peace. Urgent action must be taken to address, adapt to, and fight the effects of climate change.
Dependency on a militaristic foreign policy and a disregard for our impact on the climate will hurt future generations the most. CAPA works to empower the next wave of leaders by providing them the necessary tools and resources that will allow them to challenge the status quo.
