The No Way to Treat a Child Campaign is led by Chicago Faith Coalition on Middle East Policy, American Friends Service Committee and Defense for Children International Palestine, and is supported by Jewish Voice for Peace, FOSNA, Friends Committee on National Legislation, Committee for a Just Peace in Israel and Palestine, Arab Jewish Partnership, American Muslims for Palestine, Middle East Task Force of Chicago Presbytery, Working Group on Middle East a Ministry of Metro Chicago Synod, and Christian Peacemaker Teams.

5.2 Million Churchgoers Say: Stand with the Oppressed by Supporting Palestinian Children’s Rights (H.R. 2407)! 

Several denominations, representing 5.2 million Americans, have taken action against U.S. complicity in the abuse of Palestinian children, including the Episcopal Church, United Church of Christ, Presbyterian Church, Alliance of Baptists, Disciples of Christ, and seven conferences of the United Methodist Church. These churches condemn the violence of Israel’s brutal military occupation and demand that U.S. tax dollars not be used to fund the abuse of Palestinian children.

Their resolutions are testaments to the universality of our progressive principles: supporters of justice and equality everywhere must oppose separate-and-unequal systems anywhere, including the separate-and-unequal military detention system for Palestinian children. Read more by clicking here.
