Stop & Reject AIPAC's right-wing influence on political elections

We have to stop AIPAC’s devastating impact on our grassroots, people-powered movement.

AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee is becoming an imminent threat to our pro-democracy, progressive vision for our future.

AIPAC's investments in House and Senate races have been creating dire circumstances and damaging the credibility of prominent progressives and Democrats for years. The impact of the committee cannot be understated, but it's only going to get worse, since AIPAC launched its first-ever PAC in December and earlier this month unveiled its first 120 endorsees, including 37 Republicans who refused to affirm Joe Biden's election on January 6, 2021. AIPAC supports candidates that are supportive of the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, all the way to those who believe that Trump should be/still is the president.

Tens of millions of dollars allow them substantial influence and investment in our elections and we need to take every step to reject AIPAC.

Why is this important?

In 2022, progressive Democrat Andy Levin was ousted from his House seat, largely because of a whopping $4 million ad spend from AIPAC—all money spent directly attacking him and his campaign—partially because of his criticism of the actions of the Israeli government in the past.

Let’s be clear that that’s the only line AIPAC will draw when it comes to where their support ends. The committee will happily support prominent pro-insurrectionists and election deniers who believe that Donald Trump is still the rightful President of the United States. And 4 million dollars was chump change compared to what they’re trying to spend this cycle to get rid of some of our most progressive members of Congress.

AIPAC is expected to spend $100 MILLION—much of which comes from Trump donors—across its political entities in 2024, taking aim at candidates who have held the Israel government accountable for flouting international law and not prioritizing the humanitarian concerns of those in Gaza.

AIPAC’s biggest targets are members of the Squad, progressive House members like Cori Bush, Pramila Jayapal, Jamaal Bowman, Ayanna Pressley, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib who have been openly pressuring the administration to call for a lasting, permanent ceasefire.

It doesn’t stop with our most progressive champions and the Squad either, AIPAC’s ambitions are broader. United Democracy Project, the group’s super PAC, is monitoring 15 to 20 House races and polling in many of those districts, and it will likely continue to support anti-democratic, election-denying extremists again.

This influx of money to oppose the strongest progressives in Congress and to support election deniers hurts our democracy! We have to call out and work to stop the large influence of corporate dark money within politics that actively discourages the participation of grassroots donors and suppresses the impact of moving our country forward on progressive issues. And in this moment we have to continue to support members of Congress who promote and support a ceasefire, and work to get us closer to a solution that protects Israeli and Palestinian civilians and stops endless, devastating violence.
