All People are Equal and Should Be Treated with Dignity and Respect
All people are equal and should be treated with dignity and respect. But for decades, the Palestinian people have faced Israeli settler colonialism and occupation enforced through racist and discriminatory legal regimes, forced displacement, blockade and movement restrictions, and systematic human rights abuses. According to legal scholars and the international human rights community, this situation constitutes the crime of Apartheid. It must end.
Brooklyn For Peace has signed the apartheid-free pledge, joining communities in solidarity with the Palestinian people and their call for equal and full rights. If you are part of an organization or faith community, please consider encouraging your organization to take the pledge.
