Lily Greenberg Call: Why I resigned from the Biden administration

“I could no longer represent this administration… The most powerful person in the world is continuing to back Israel’s actions and also use this framework of Jewish safety.”

In a wide-ranging interview, we speak to Lily Greenberg Call, the first Jewish appointee to publicly resign over US President Joe Biden’s support for Israel during its ongoing war on Gaza.

We speak about her decision to resign, the reaction it sparked, and also reactions from within her own community.
