Campaign

Why This Campaign

For those following the issue, it is impossible to ignore the reality of Israeli apartheid. Since 2021, three major human rights groups (including one Israeli group) have published exhaustive reports accusing Israel of the crime of apartheid against the Palestinians. Through taxpayer dollars and political cover, the American people, including Vermonters, continue to uphold this cruel system of inequality and persecution. This campaign seeks to dismantle that support by affirming the rights of the Palestinian people, as we do for all people.

Campaign Goal

Our campaign goal is to put the issue of Palestinian rights directly to Burlington voters on Town Meeting Day, March 4, 2025. To do this, we need to collect 1,550 signatures by January 2025.
