Lawakers Seek To Stop NY Charities From Funding Violence In Gaza

Hundreds gathered at the State Capitol on Wednesday in support of the “Not On Our Dime!” Act ( A6943A /S6992A), which would stop the flow of millions in tax-deductible funds from organizations registered as charities in New York to violent settlers in the West Bank and Israeli military units devastating Gaza. Over $60 million yearly has gone from nonprofits registered in New York to violent Israeli settler organizations, We hear first from the main sponsor, Assembly Member Zohran K. Mamdani, who served as the emcee, followed by Senator Jabari Brisport, and then Aber Kawas of the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights. We finish with Assemblymember Sarahana Shrestha.
