Take Action! Say No to Divestment. Ask Presbyterian Leaders to Support Reconciliation and Peace Instead

As IAN has been alerting communities, the Presbyterian Church (USA) will debate a resolution that calls for the PCUSA to divest from three major companies that do business with Israel. The proposal will be voted on at their biennial General Assembly at the end of this month. Please join us by signing and sharing our letter urging Presbyterians commissioners to vote no on divestment.
Our collective voice is strongest when we stand together. This letter builds on a previous one signed by 1,300 American rabbis from all four religious streams and all 50 states. By adding your name, you pledge your support for working together with our interfaith partners to achieve a two-state solution that will allow Palestinians and Israelis the opportunity to live side-by-side in peace. This cannot be achieved through divestment, a strategy that does not foster reconciliation and only serves to poison the well for positive interfaith relations. Read More.
