TUES: Town Hall: “Not on Our Dime! Ending New York Funding of Israeli Settler Violence” Act – New Location

August 29, 2023 @ 6:30 PM

Tuesday, August 29 @ 6:30 pm ET
CUNY Law Auditorium (2 Court Square West, Long Island City, Queens)

Join Senator Kristen Gonzalez, Assembly Member Zohran Mamdani & the Not On Our Dime! coalition for an in-person informational town hall about the Not On Our Dime! Act, legislation that would prevent NY-registered charities from funding war crimes. RSVP here.

Background: Over 700,000 Israeli settlers live on 250 illegal settlements built on Palestinian land in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. To establish these settlements, the Israeli settler movement and its institutions have used a combination of discriminatory laws, Israeli military decrees, surveillance, and outright violence, often by private individuals with the backing of the Israeli military. Many of the settlers are actually funded by organizations here in New York State, using their status as tax-exempt “charitable” organizations.
