37] – The Working Families Party [reply@workingfamilies.org] is holding a Ceasefire Now phone bank on Wed., Dec. 13 & 20 at 3 PM ET.  Understand that the Palestinian people are distinct from Hamas, and the Israeli people do not represent the Israeli government's actions. The U.S. plays a role by providing military aid to Israel, and we must push for a permanent ceasefire.  Congress is set to vote on a bill that would send $14 billion in US taxpayer money and in US-made weapons to the Israeli military to support its brutal war. This is on top of the $3.5 billion we already send to the Israeli military every year. Israel’s bombing campaign and ground invasion have already killed at least 15,000 Palestinians, most of them women and children, obliterated civilian infrastructure including schools and hospitals, and made entire cities uninhabitable.

  As more and more members of Congress come out for a ceasefire, there’s also growing momentum also to block any further military funding for Israel so long as its human rights abuses continue. There may be a vote in the Senate on such a provision as early as next week. Call your Senator and tell them you oppose US taxpayer dollars and US weapons being sent to the Israeli military to commit war crimes against Palestinian civilians.

41] -- Join Indivisible Civics for a Truth Brigade -- Big Truths community call on Wed., Dec. 13 at 6:30 PM ET. Take some time and celebrate the incredible accomplishments of the previous year. Next year get with the “Disinfo-Busters” campaign!  Block disinformation with the Indivisible Truth Brigade as disinformation poisons minds and prevents our society from moving forward to protect the people and the planet. Lies are spread to obtain unearned power -- it's as simple as that. Lies around voting and elections provide the path to that unearned power. Join on the second Wednesday of each month to learn where we are most vulnerable, and how we can and must disrupt disinformation. RSVP at https://indivisible.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0vdO-qrDMiHtQFbEFMD80DD8QJYqHI5vVg?_x_zm_rtaid=yyN7r9c-RkmrwtLAzovNTQ.1701707605985.a5ba56f5f3574f38c6c5bdbc3ca382a5&_x_zm_rhtaid=940#/registration
