AUPHR is an association of American taxpayers united by a mutual concern for human rights in general and Palestinian human rights in particular. Our members are of all religions, races, national origins and political persuasions. We are an open, locally based organization unaffiliated with other groups, though seeking to complement the work of others who share our concerns. Our aim is to eliminate the substantial U.S. funding and discriminatory US policies that directly or indirectly support the oppression and violation of human rights of Palestinian people in Israel and the Israeli occupied territories. Our tools are public education and political and legal action.
