Dear Senator/Representative,

I am writing to urge you to attend an important briefing spotlighting one West Bank village – Wadi Foquin-- as an example of how the Israeli occupation affects ordinary people. The briefing will be held Tuesday, February 23, 2016 from noon to 2 PM in B338 of the Rayburn House Office Building. More information can be found at http://www.friendsofwadifoquin.com/. Featuring panelists from the village, the briefing will be an opportunity to learn about the suffering in the region and what the US can do to address it.

As a person of faith, I believe in the importance of working to preserve life and to prevent further suffering and that Congress can play a constructive role in this regard by supporting policies that foster a just peace for Israelis and Palestinians.

I hope that you will be able to attend the briefing to learn about the consequences of Israeli settlement expansion and what the US can do. In addition I urge you to speak and act for an end to the Israeli occupation of all Palestinian land.

With gratitude for your service,
