APN Resources for the 116th Congress

Americans for Peace Now (APN) congratulates the legislators elected yesterday to the House of Representatives and the Senate. In particular, we welcome new members of Congress. As they prepare to come to Washington, we encourage them to deepen their understanding of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We invite them to use APN as a resource for enhancing their efforts on Capitol Hill to advance peace between Israel, the Palestinians, and the Arab world.

APN's Director of Policy and Government Relations Debra Shushan said: "As the incoming members of the House and Senate arrive in Washington, we will provide them with resources to help them advance pro-Israel, pro-peace policies. Meanwhile, we offer a vast array of online resources, as well as our knowledge and experience, to assist any members of Congress and their staff. I look forward to working with the 116th Congress and invite members and staff to contact me."
