Tell Congress: Cosponsor Ceasefire NOW Resolution

More than 1,030 children like ours have already been killed by Israeli bombs this week. The new siege is preventing all water, electricity, medicine, fuel and food from getting into Gaza. Hospitals have been bombed and others are struggling without water or electricity. People are already dying.

I appeal to you – with the greatest urgency – to cosponsor this resolution for an immediate ceasefire.

Use your platform to stop Gaza Genocide with the#CeasefireNow Toolkit and the Rising Majority calls to action.
