A US congresswoman has been honored for defending the rights of Palestinians in the face of Israeli human rights abuses.

"Honored to receive the Champion of Palestinian Rights Award from @AMPalestine today as part of Palestine Advocacy Day," US Democratic Representative Betty McCollum said Tuesday on Twitter, referring to the group American Muslims for Palestine (AMP).

"Advancing peace human rights for Palestinian children all children should be a shared priority! #HR2407."

House of Representatives Resolution 2407 is the Promoting Human Rights for Palestinian Children Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act, a bill introduced by McCollum to prohibit Israel’s use of US military funding to detain Palestinian children.

Founded in 2006, the AMP is a national education and grassroots-based organization dedicated to educating the American public about Palestine.

McCollum is a 10-term representative for a district centered on St. Paul, capital of the Midwestern state of Minnesota.
