Action Alert: Demand Immediate Reinstatement of Lifesaving UNRWA Funding



Only hours after the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ordered Israel to take “all measures within its power” to prevent acts that could amount to genocide against Palestinians in Gaza, the White House announced that the United States was “pausing” funding for “The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East” (UNRWA). UNRWA is fundamentally the most important UN agency for providing aid and support for more than 5.7 million registered Palestinian refugees across the Middle East—including the desperate 2.2 million Palestinians in Gaza. Yet, President Biden chose to aid Israel further in its genocide and pause funding following baseless and unfounded accusations from Israel that an immeasurably small fraction of its staff, 12 people (0.0004% of its workforce), were somehow involved in the October 7 attacks. Call and Email your Members of Congress and President Biden using the action tool below, and urge your friends and family to do the same.
