Congressional Leadership Learning Mission to Jerusalem, the West Bank, and meeting with Gazans

Rebuilding Alliance is honored to sponsor our next Congressional Leadership Learning Mission to Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza. Applications are due before the House and Senate Ethics Committees no later than 30 days before departure, thus our February 14th deadline.

Senators and Representatives are invited to join a Congressional Leadership Learning Mission trip, hosted and sponsored by Rebuilding Alliance, to Israel, the West Bank, and including visits with Gazans permitted to leave Gaza to meet you. This is an accompaniment tour so Constituents from your district or State are invited to join us.

This will be a one week fact-finding tour during the Congressional recess on March 15th – 23rd. All expenses for you and your family member will be paid in full accordance with Ethics Committee guidelines.

Rebuilding Alliance is a U.S. 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in California. We have been working with Palestinians and Israelis in the region for the past 15 years. We organized their first Leadership Learning Mission in May of 2018 to very positive reviews from the seven Congressional staff and eight constituents on that tour. Both parties participated.

We belief it is very possible that just by visiting, your delegation will help keep the West Bank Palestinian Bedouin village of Khan Al Ahmar standing. Your questions will bring light to the village's own master plan and bring forward a really great win-win solution. In addition this CLLM will:

• Provide participants with an understanding of the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with a focus on how the 70 years of occupation have affected Palestinians and Israelis, and led to current conditions.

• Examine the impact of US cutbacks of aid on the education and health of Palestinian children;

• Clarify what it means now that the US has consolidated our Consulate for Palestinians with our Embassy to Israel;

• Particular attention will be given to the rights of Palestinian children and families to a home especially in the 62% of the West Bank under Israeli control, to food and economic security, to education, to safety, to legal rights, and to a future.

The program will include discussion of how the peaceful aspirations of all can be furthered when Palestinians and Israelis both enjoy the benefits of basic human rights, and how U.S. policy can support those aspirations.

4th Annual #ICareAboutPeace Palestinian Children's Briefing to Congress

Rebuilding Alliance is inviting Palestinian children to present their visions of peace to Congress. All together, we are planning to bring five children and parents from West Bank villages at risk of demolition and from Gaza to present during our briefing, along with experts from Israel and Palestine. The children and their parents all now have their US visas! This will be the first time that a young person from Gaza is part of the delegation!

A senior Senator is sponsoring the briefing to Congress and we are awaiting confirmation of exact time, date, and room number. As soon as this is confirmed, we’ll ask Americans to email invitations to their Senators and Representatives to attend on their behalf as constituents.
