To: Congressman Mark Pocan 10 East Doty Street, Suite 405 Madison, WI 53703
I am writing to thank you for your October 18, 2023 statement calling for cessation of hostilities between Israel and Hamas and supporting a robust package of humanitarian aid for both Israel and Gaza. As the violence continues, we are witnessing massive loss of life and tragedy in Gaza. With each day of violence we are careening toward a wider war in the Middle East. Thank you for being out front and thank you for political courage in offering your statement which refers to the seemingly indiscriminate bombing in Gaza as “collective punishment” of innocent civilians and children. Please let me know if there is anything I can do or anything the United Nations Association of Dane County can do to support you as you push for the settlement of hostilities and humanitarian relief in this conflict. Sincerely,
