We believe the most effective foreign policy is one that reflects these values.

Stand United is a movement born from the catastrophe in Gaza with one goal: engage differently and strategically.

Who is leading this effort?

Stand United Campaign is a project of Americans for Better Policy (ABP), which was born out of the ongoing catastrophe in Gaza to unite our communities, building power to be able to engage differently and strategically on a political level. For years we have been using our freedoms to speak out against injustice, whether by protesting or calling/sending letters to legislators. These are obviously reactionary measures that have limited effect. Our goal is to, for the first time, work proactively. 

ABP is a 501(c)(4) advocacy organization based in Washington DC, that was founded by dozens of policy, political, campaign, and advocacy professionals. With over 40 years of combined policy and political experience in Washington DC, these professionals are volunteering their time and energy to create a political machine that will work to change the disastrous status quo, methodically and strategically.

How is this funded?

Perpetual individual and institutional donors from community-based grant-making foundations. Americans for Better Policy (ABP) is a nonprofit organization exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code. Under this classification we can accept contributions and are not generally required to publicly disclose our donors, ensuring the safety of our community.

Where will my money go?

We will capitalize on every opportunity to advance a more rights-centric U.S. policy toward the Middle East. That means lobbying members of Congress regardless of their party affiliation. We are looking to build long term relationships with those who share our goals.

For the collective pot of money to have maximum impact, it has to be pragmatically uncommitted to any party. 

The money will go into three categories: lobbying members of Congress to support humane policies toward the Middle East, winning over those who are neutral, and softening or holding adversaries accountable.

How do you decide between who is an ally? Who is neutral? Who is an adversary?

Data. We will rely on research and data to determine past and current positions, as well as committee assignments and political vulnerability. We will also make efforts to speak with and listen to legislators and their staff in regards to their views and goals. This data will inform our strategy on who we lobby and which races we may engage in.

How do you plan on advancing a just foreign policy towards the Middle East?

It starts with Gaza and ends with a just U.S. foreign policy towards the Middle East. Here’s how we plan to do that:

  1. By addressing the root causes, not just the ever-worsening symptoms, of archaic, highly securitized and ineffective foreign policy and replacing it with one that is centered on human rights, respect and dignity for all people. 
  2. Money! The only missing piece from all the previous efforts of our communities prior to this moment.In the short term, our primary objectives are to boost fundraising efforts and solidify our standing as seasoned political operators by securing key wins.
  3. As our community grows we must equip the next generation of Arab Americans with professional experience in foreign policy-focused roles to ensure that we will affect all policy and legislation impacting the Middle East for years to come. We will develop leadership programs that will place Arab American university students in offices of members of Congress who have demonstrated an interest in foreign policy and human rights. The program will teach professional development and deepen participants' understanding of the legislative process. In the long term, new leaders from our community will hold positions in public office, focused on foreign policy, who serve as a foundation for lasting change. From empowering nuanced and principled personnel, to having a seat at the decision-making table. 

We have tried voting and even some fundraising before; what’s so different about this?

Letting a legislator know that you voted for them once they’re in office is usually a reactionary measure to an issue in the Middle East, and has limited effect. So what can we do?

  • We must be proactive! We will organize our community to engage with candidate’s on the campaign trail to advocate for our issues before they take office.
  • We must be targeted! We will be able to use our resources more efficiently by researching our abilities and numbers as a community and targeting key legislators.
  • No “free” votes! Candidates must meet our expectations, before we give them our vote.
  • We will remain engaged! Legislators will be held accountable if they vote for policies that go against human rights centered foreign policy in the Middle East. The same way we help get a candidate voted in, we can help to vote them out.
  • How is this effort any different than other Arab-American/Muslim-American organizations that already exist?
  1. Current Arab and Muslim American organizations have effected great change on domestic policy and civil rights issues, but lack expertise in foreign policy and political campaigns. Americans for Better Policy (ABP) will not replicate their work but rather serve as a complementary organization which will advance a just and effective U.S. foreign policy towards the Middle East by uniting Arab-Americans of various backgrounds, Muslim-Americans spanning different ethnicities, and strong allies.
  2. A crucial factor to our success is the ABP task force which is composed of dozens of political staffers, campaigners, policy, and advocacy professionals with over 40 years of combined experience.
  3. Current organizations have struggled with nonpartisanship and have leaned toward one party. However, ABP will remain committed to non-partisanship to ensure support for just foreign policy towards the Middle East.
