Previous Activism in American Muslims for Palestine PAD
In 2021, the responsibility for Palestine Advocacy Day transitioned to Americans for Justice in Palestine Action (AJP Action). AJP serves as AMP’s 501(c)(4) affiliated organization. Notably, in the previous year, Palestine advocates played a pivotal role in achieving a remarkable milestone by making it the largest Palestine advocacy day in the nation’s history, with participants representing all 50 states.
AMP Palestine Advocacy Day 2022
Ayah Ziyadeh’s article for American Justice for Palestine on the 2022 Palestine Advocacy Day highlights remarkable achievements in the advocacy for Palestinian rights. In that year, a record-breaking 803 American voters actively participated in the annual advocacy day, engaging with over 130 congressional offices to advocate for Palestinian rights within the Congress. A significant success story was the progress of HR2590. This was a bill supported and lobbied for by AJP Action. It garnered 32 cosponsors. This marked a substantial increase from the mere 13 cosponsors it initially had when introduced in 2021, a development that was once considered unlikely.
Finally, Ayah acknowledges the frustration that can arise from the sometimes less visible progress. However, she underscores the growing confidence in their efforts to reshape entrenched US politics on Israel-Palestine and promote legislation supporting Palestinian rights. Ayah extends an invitation to all to join this movement. She emphasizes the crucial role of passion, dedication, and collective voices in the ongoing fight for justice. Together, they aim to build momentum and create a lasting impact on the lives of Palestinians in their pursuit of freedom and equality.
