What a week! Less than one week ago, we cheered President Obama's bold action on the pro-peace resolution in the United Nations Security Council. And earlier this week, Secretary of State Kerry delivered a stunning, comprehensive and courageous speech on settlements, and laid out the Obama administration's vision of a two-state solution and the imperative to achieve it. Not only do both of these remarks and actions represent positions long-advocated by APN, but both events contain and/or reflect the significant research of Lara Friedman (APN Policy and Legislative Director), which documents how an Obama administration abstention would be in line with U.S. policy in the UN and which was published in the New York Times. Both events reflect as well Lara's testimony on settlements delivered on behalf of APN to the United Nations Security Council in October. APN worked relentlessly and effectively to make these important events happen. Help us keep the momentum going!
I encourage you to read Lara's powerful and empowering thoughts (below) on what it means to continue to fight for peace after January 20, 2017. We can only continue our critical and singular work with your support.
