Take Action View All

We call upon our constituents to support efforts to rebuff a petition targeting jazz artists scheduled to perform at Israel’s International Red Sea Jazz Festival next month. This petition, signed by nearly 16,000 cultural boycott proponents, urges artists to cancel their planned performances by making disturbing claims that Israel is using their music to whitewash genocide, apartheid, and the deaths of Palestinian children. These cannot be the only messages that artists hear. Therefore, in response, we urge you to sign and circulate CCFP’s Anti-Boycott Petition.  This petition is sponsored by the Israel Action Network and the Creative Community for Peace (CCFP).
