Click here for a copy of the critical letter, led by Representatives Jan Schakowsky (IL-09) and Anna Eshoo (CA-14), with a full list of signatories. The letter is signed by nearly 60 percent of the Democratic caucus, including Representatives Howard Berman (CA-28), Henry Waxman (CA-30), Jerrold Nadler (NY-08), Barney Frank (MA-04), Rosa DeLauro (CT-03), and Chris Van Hollen (MD-08). It urges President Obama to use this critical moment in the Middle East as an opportunity to reaffirm the United States’ leadership in pursuit of a two-state resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Thank you and congratulations to the hundreds of J Street activists who lobbied in support of the letter in March as part of J Street’s second national conference and met with over 200 congressional offices.
