Over the past several months, the Advocacy team has seen important changes in this time of crisis. I'll be happy to share updates with you in the coming weeks. Until then, I want to extend a special invitation for the following event:
On Wednesday, April 7th at 10am ET, please join us for "Jerusalem Children on Peace"; a Zoom teleconference call with children from the Madaa Creative Center, who will describe what peace means to them and show you the Pinwheels for Peace they created. We ask everyone to hear the children's dreams of peace and to contact Congress to press them to save the children's homes in East Jerusalem. Joining us on the call tomorrow is Madaa Creative Center Director Jawad Siyam and Peace Now's Hagit Ofran.
Register for the event here: https://actionnetwork.org/events/jerusalem-children-on-peace/
As you may know, 270 Palestinian families are currently facing imminent eviction in East Jerusalem neighborhoods. So why hold a Pinwheels for Peace event? If we can only figure out how to get this problem to Congress in the virtual world, we hope this will have the same remarkable impact that the children's Pinwheels briefings have had these past few years. We are starting small where it counts and hoping to extend the effort to help keep the other threatened families in their rightful homes as well.
I hope you'll join us for the special event tomorrow. Thank you for your support.
