AOC Lends Her Clout to New York Bill Which Would Sanction Charities Funding Israel

HeadlineMay 21, 2024

A group of New York lawmakers have reintroduced a measure that would ban New York nonprofits from using tax-deductible donations to fund Israeli settlers and Israeli military units in Gaza and the West Bank. The Not On Our Dime! Act would also prohibit organizations from “aiding and abetting” the resettling of Gaza or supporting Israeli military actions that violate international law. The legislation was first introduced last year by New York Assemblymember Zohran Mamdani and state Senator Jabari Brisport. U.S. Congressmember Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke in favor of the bill at a rally Monday.
