Take Action

Tell Congress to pass the resolution calling for a mutual cease-fire between Israel and Hamas and facilitate humanitarian aid for Gaza.

On October 7th, Hamas conducted a horrific and unprecedented attack on Israel, committing atrocities especially among women and children and taking hostage over 250 individuals. Since then, the current war in the Middle East has claimed thousands of victims—including children, who make up nearly half of Gaza’s population.  

As educators, we believe this war must end. We ask our elected leaders to support a negotiated bilateral cease-fire. The people of Gaza and Israel have the right to exist in nonviolence, and the children of Gaza have the right to live and learn in peace, security, and freedom.

House Resolution 786, introduced by Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO), urges the Biden administration to immediately call for and facilitate “de-escalation and a cease fire to urgently end the current violence and…to promptly send and facilitate the entry of humanitarian assistance into Gaza.” Urge your senator and representatives to support this resolution.
