Israel-Palestine Working Group

The Israel Palestine Working Group of H-PAD has been working since October 2023 to promote a ceasefire and humanitarian aid to Gaza. We also oppose U.S. military aid to Israel, which only serves to prolong the war and increase the suffering of Palestinians and the destruction of Gaza.

To get our message across we have written letters to elected legislators, to the editors of the Chicago Tribune, the Orlando Sentinel, and the Daytona Beach News-Journal, and published articles in The Nation and El Espectador (Bogota, Colombia).

We have also produced two short videos (designed to be shared!) on why people should support the ceasefire, and another on why criticism of Israeli policy is NOT anti-Semitic.

You can view (and share!) them on youtube or other social media platforms:

We hope you will join us in our work! If you think you can contribute, please Margaret Power at
