Things You Can Do:

  1. RAISE AWARENESS. Help others to learn more about the nature of violence against children in Israel/Palestine—by inviting Palestinian or Israeli children’s rights, humanitarian or peace organizations to speak in your community, encouraging a local theater to show a documentary on the subject, or holding a memorial vigil at which the children’s names are read.

  2. VOICE YOUR CONCERNS.
    • Set aside some time each week to write your elected representatives (see contact information below), asking your government to provide humanitarian funding to protect children caught in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and to apply pressure on both sides to ensure that children are never targets of violence.
    • Write to Israeli and Palestinian officials in your country, urging that both the government of Israel and the Palestinian Authority act at all times in the best interests of children—especially in protecting them from violence.
    • Write your newspaper and magazine editors, asking them to increase their coverage of the impacts this conflict has on Palestinian and Israeli children.

    These letters are more important than you may realize in changing government policies and media approaches to the Middle East.
