PALESTINE: After a week-long pause in fighting, Israel resumed its indiscriminate bombing of Gaza. The lives of millions of Palestinians and the remaining hostages are again at risk.

Since the Israel-Palestine War began, we have witnessed a groundswell of activism for peace that has transformed the political landscape. FCNL advocates have already sent more than 350,000 letters to Congress and held dozens of meetings with lawmakers. That pressure helped make possible the temporary truce and the return of more than 100 hostages. It created the political space for dozens of lawmakers to publicly call for a ceasefire and demand humanitarian aid for civilians living under siege in Gaza.

Will you join this movement for peace? Urge Congress to support a permanent ceasefire.

Palestinians and Israelis deserve to live in peace. We have seen over and over that this cannot be achieved through repeated cycles of bloodshed.

It will take all of us working together to change the course of this war. Every action helps strengthen our call to end the violence.

Act now. Send a personalized letter to your members of Congress. Urge them to call for a permanent ceasefire.
