Join us in a candlight vigil in memory of the innocent civilians killed in gaza during the current seige. Over 1,903 palestinians have fallen victim to israeli air strikes and shelling and the number continues to increase as each day passes. In a recent report, the united nations estimates that 80% of those killed were civilians, women and children.
In this time of anger, frustration, and sadness, we ask that our community comes together to honor and mourn those who lost their lives due to the u.s. government's continued support of israel's illegal occupation, blockade, and onslaught.
We will begin at 7:00 pm by reading names of the victims followed by a candlelight vigil at 9:00 pm in honor of palestinians who have lost their lives in israel's current attack on gaza.
