Leadership Learning Mission
to Gaza, the West Bank, and Jerusalem
April 27 2018 - May 5 2018
Six House staff members will be participating in Rebuilding Alliance's Leadership Learning Mission to the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel!
They will be joining as a result of the 300 emails constituents sent to their Senators and Representatives to urge them to send their senior policy staff to visit Palestine and Israel with Rebuilding Alliance. Senior staff from five Democratic offices and one Republican office are coming. Seven constituents will be joining as well.
This will give staffers and constituents the opportunity to talk with residents of Palestinian villages, to visit important historical sites, and to meet with UN officials, human rights organizations, and lawyers who represent Palestinian communities at risk of demolition by the Israeli Army. Our hope is that these experiences will equip Congressional staffers with the first-hand information they need to take what they learned back to DC and assist members of Congress in taking a firm stance in support of Palestinian rights.
