Ask your members of Congress to speak up for Khan al Ahmar!
To keep Khan al Ahmar standing, we recently brought our delegation from Khan Al Ahmar to the House and Senate. We met with senior staff at the offices of twenty-five Senators and Representatives, Democrats and Republicans. Now we ask you help to press them to take the next step.

and request that they travel to Khan al Ahmar in August
On Monday, June 25 through Thurs June 28, Rebuilding Alliance brought these people to walk the halls of Congress to help keep Khan al Ahmar standing:
- Eid Jahalin, Community Leader of the Palestinian Bedouin village of Khan al Ahmar,
- Alon Cohen-Lifshitz, Director of Planning and Community, Bimkom: Planners for Planning Rights
- Nava Sheer, Senior Planner/ GIS, Bimkom: Planners for Planning Rights, and
- Donna Baranski-Walker, Executive Director of Rebuilding Alliance
We did this because last month, on May 24th, the Israeli High Court ruled that Khan al Ahmar can be demolished at any time and the Israeli Government is under no obligation to provide an alternative location for them to move. One way to assure the village will remain standing is for Congress to show they care.
Now is the time to rally Congress to press for a political solution prevent the demolition of Khan Al Ahmar and its famous 'tire school'. Yes we can.
