The wave of discriminatory actions against individuals who speak out against the injustices in Gaza is deeply concerning. Many are experiencing severe repercussions such as job losses, having personal information shared with malicious intent, and even violent threats or physical assaults, simply for expressing their views.

In the face of this alarming trend, the work of Palestine Legal has become increasingly vital. They offer essential legal assistance to those facing repression due to their support for Palestine. Recognizing the urgency of this situation, the Center for Arab American Philanthropy (CAAP) launched a campaign to support its Palestine Legal Fund.

Below, we outline some of the initiatives we have led to support Palestine Legal’s vital work.
