As part of CancelPinkwashing – we DEMAND The Task Force:
1) Lift the informal ban on Palestine and stop pinkwashing Israeli apartheid. Commit to honoring the call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) of Israel and Israeli institutions.
2) Publicly apologize to the queer and trans Muslim, Jewish, and MENA/SWANA communities, particularly queer and trans Palestinians, for the Task Force’s role in deliberately silencing and censoring these communities and their organizing.
3) Commit to providing time and space for workshops focused on queer and trans decolonization work that includes queer and trans Palestinian liberation.
4) Commit to providing time and space for Jewish and Muslim faith programming that is equal to the time provided for Christian faith programming.
See you in Detroit!
