Please join us for a peaceful candle-light vigil in memory of the innocent civilians killed in Gaza these past few weeks. Many innocent women and children have fallen victim to Israeli air strikes and shelling. Over 2,000 Palestinians have been killed and the number continues to increase as each day passes.
These civilians largely remain nameless and faceless, but with your help we can give identity to the victims lost in this tragic and unjust conflict. 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.
Please invite your friends and family to join us as well.
