Dear friends –
This year, The Task Force rejected all sessions related to Palestine/Israel and pinkwashing at Creating Change and put Israel advocates at the lead for all Jewish programming at the conference. It should also be noted that they rejected all three of Tarab NYC’s workshop submissions, which included a Queer MENA Caucus (Zionism Free), a workshop on Orientalism, and our Security Culture know your rights training. Beyond Creating Change (which begins this Wednesday), the Task Force has further indicated its alignment with Israel by partnering with the Israeli-based circuit party Forever Tel Aviv at its annual Winter Party Festival in March.
In response, we are asking people to sign and share a letter demanding that the Task Force end its blackout on Palestine and stop pinkwashing Israel.
