Join the Center for Constitutional Rights and our partners for a multi-part livestream on January 26 to amplify the hearing in our federal lawsuit, Defense for Children International – Palestine (DCIP) v. Biden.

January 26 is also the We Charge Genocide International Day of Action for Permanent Ceasefire, and the Center for Constitutional Rights and our partners are encouraging people all over the world to hold watch events to follow the pre-hearing livestream and then to switch to the court stream when that begins at 9 a.m. PST / 12 p.m. EST.

During the YouTube livestream, lawyers, advocates, and organizers will share analysis about the importance to the Palestinian solidarity movement of this momentous court hearing and the DCIP v.

Defense for Children International – Palestine v. Biden was filed in November by the Center for Constitutional Rights and co-counsel Van Der Hout LLP against the President, Secretary of State, and Secretary of Defense on behalf of two Palestinian human rights organizations and eight Palestinians in the U.S. and Palestine. The case challenges the U.S. government’s failure to prevent and complicity in Israel’s unfolding genocide of the Palestinian people and asks the court to order the Biden administration to cease diplomatic and military support and comply with its legal obligations under international and federal law. The hearing on the preliminary injunction motion and the government’s motion to dismiss the case will take place on Friday, January 26.
