Endorsement of J Street U’s Change the Platform Campaign
"The George Washington University College Democrats support a Democratic platform which advocates for justice and human rights for people around the globe. As the Democratic Convention is quickly approaching, the GW College Democrats calls on authors of the DNC platform to fulfill this mission by adding language which affirms the rights of Palestinians, condemns the unjust and illegal Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the blockade of Gaza, and opposes annexation of Palestinian territory to the official Democratic party platform. We also unilaterally condemn violence and hatred against Israelis, as this directly hinders the fostering of peace between the two peoples. We stand with J Street U in their fight for our party platform to acknowledge and denounce the occupation."
