America and Israel Share Values

 

As Democrats who champion equality, immigrant rights, civil rights, voting rights, women’s rights, and the rights of LGBTQ people, we applaud Israel’s Declaration of Independence which codifies these rights and the ability of Israel’s citizens to exercise and expand them in a free democracy.

As Democrats who believe in working toward a peaceful future, we support two states—a Jewish state and a Palestinian state living side by side in peace and security. We stand with our Party and its historic tradition of supporting our democratic ally, Israel in her pursuit of peace with her neighbors.

We will actively support Democratic presidential and congressional candidates, as well as Democratic Party policies and platforms, which share these principles.
