Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Civil Rights, International, International Human Rights

Mission: We are a national coalition of more than 400 local and national organizations working together to support Palestinian human rights. We are the only U.S.-based coalition uniting a diverse array of organizations and constituencies into a common platform to advocate for an end to Israel's occupation and apartheid policies. We support a just and lasting peace based on freedom, justice, and equality for all.

Results: This summer, the Presbyterian Church (USA) General Assembly voted to divest $21 million from Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard, and Motorola Solutions due to their complicity in Israel's military occupation. A nationwide network of activists blocked attempts by pro-Israel groups to allow Israel into the Visa Waiver Program by securing an amendment that effectively bars Israel from entering the program until it ends its discriminatory treatment of U.S. citizens. In October, just a few months after occupation profiteers G4S and Veolia announced their plans to end contracts with Israel, SodaStream announced that it will be shutting down its factory in an illegal Israeli settlement in the West Bank, proving that boycott, divestment, and sanctions campaigns are having an impact on companies profiting from Israel's continued denial of Palestinian rights.

Target demographics: support a just and lasting peace between Palestinians and Israelis.

Direct beneficiaries per year: coordinate SodaStream boycott campaign, support Presbyterian divestment from companies profiting from Israel's occupation, and educate lawmakers and their staff with five Congressional briefings.

Geographic areas served: the U.S.

Programs: boycott, divestment, and sanctions campaigns to challenge institutional complicity in Israel's violations of Palestinian human rights.

I've been donating to the US Campaign for a couple of years now and really feel like my money is actually making a difference. They give a good balance of informational emails and ways to get involved, and their grassroots tenacity has grown the organization and made the most of the donations they receive. It's been really rewarding to see us get more wins for justice under our belt, and I'm excited about the future!

I fully support the ending of the occupation of the areas West of the Jordan River by the foreign interlopers called Falasteenis. They are settlers and squatters come from far and wide in the whole Muslim world, since the early 1830's. They are undocumented immigrants at best, invaders pure and simple. In 1922 the League of Nations approved the British policy and plan to provide the Arabs of Mandatory Palestine all the area east of the Jordan River keeping the smaller portion, the areas west of the river, for the Jews. As a result eventually the two populations got Israel for the Jews and Jordan for the Arabs, plus an area west of the river. The latter area was liberated in 1967. However the Arabs remained as squatters. It is high time they join their brethren and find their rightful home in Jordan.

I honestly believe that there is no injustice greater than that which has befallen the Palestinian people. So long as humanity is unable to empathise with these human beings, our capacity for empathy must necessarily be skewed and restricted.

ETO is a great org leading the way against Zionism, one of the few & rare orgs to do so. Fighting for a people so far away and a cause so noble. In my book they are fighting apartheid. Hats off to them. All our good wishes and prayers are with your team. GOD bless.

Extremely grateful to find people helping those that have no voice. It's time to be more humans and help each other, no matter where we came from, how we look, what we believe or where we are.
I did my own research about the Palestinians situation and I invite you to do the same. While we are in the comfort of our homes, eating what we please and doing what we want, there are people suffering every minute to survive.
Please, there is no difference between you and a Palestinian we both are human beings, just put yourself in their shoes for a second a join the campaign, not just for a better future for them, but a better future for everybody.
I'm from Colombia and I strongly support the campaign to end the Israeli occupation.

The US should stop its military assistance program to Israel as long as Israeli police and military forces are encouraged to shoot with live and rubber bullets Palestinian children throwing stones and, afterwards, the government takes immediate steps to destroy the homes of the parents.

Apartheid in our times is unacceptable, no matter what country perpetrates it against any people.

The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation embodies the righteous outrage of humanity against the practice of inhumanity and provides a physical presence in the U.S. of the worldwide BDS movement to end apartheid by the Israeli government.

I welcome the opportunity that this organization gives to those of us far removed geographically from the oppression of the Palestinian people in the Palestinian territories to be able to join in solidarity with the plight of Palestinians to end the immorality of their abuse at the hands of their oppressors.

I feel very deeply for the suffering people of Palestine and it grieves me deeply that I cannot be there physically with them. So it gives me some comfort that I am able to support others who can.

One Earth, one People.

please support BDS against racist, apartheid Israel, a destructive state founded by Zionists who collaborated with the Nazi Reich. With you on board, BDS can and will change history for the better

Thank you for standing up for justice. Israel needs to be held accountable for the killing of innocent children, women and other people.

It's awesome that the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation is having the voices of our oppressed Palestinian brothers and sisters heard, which is especially difficult due to the Zionist controlled media covering up their own crimes. It's also excellent that the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation is getting the involvement of all people to act and pressure those in charge to stop funding the IDF criminals.
