About Yalla Y'all

After last year’s killing of George Floyd and the much-needed national reckoning with racial injustice and white supremacy which has been sparked by his death, AMP decided to better educate itself and its supporters about anti-Black racism, convening a series of powerful monthly webinars entitled #LetsTalkBLM​.


Building on this webinar series, Felicia Eaves, AMP's Black-Palestinian Solidarity Coordinator, undertook an oral history project of Black and Palestinian activists and allies to better document the long-standing history of solidarity between the two communities and how they have supported each others’ struggles.

Investigate the charitable status of the Hebron Fund

Palestinian organizations are laying out a series of steps that Biden and Harris can take to start moving towards a platform that will secure Palestinian human rights. The Adalah Justice Project has made the call that “Biden must overturn this Trump executive order punishing campuses for organizing for justice in Palestine.” This is just one example of strategic policy changes that this movement will have to take, because the Israeli government has shown no signs of slowing down its program of settler colonialism.

The Good Shepherd Collective, along with large coalition of Palestinian organizations in Hebron are calling for Letitia James - the New York Attorney General - to investigate the charitable status of the Hebron Fund. The Hebron Fund is a radical Israeli settler organization operating in the old city of Hebron. Settler organizations have long exploited US charitable giving laws in order to finance their operations to displace the indigenous Palestinian communities.
