Often it is difficult to get the attention of members of Congress. Writing letters, making phone calls, attending lobby days, and even personal visits in home districts can often feel fruitless – especially on the issue of Israel and Palestine. This guide offers a creative approach to Congressional advocacy for those who would like to hold their members of Congress accountable for U.S. policies that impact the prospects for a just and lasting peace in Israel and the occupied Palestinian teritory.
The following guide was prepared by members of the Chicago Hearing on U.S. Policy on Israel and Palestine. A mock Congressional Hearing was held in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago. To view video from the Hearing access www.chicagohearing.org.
