Vigil for Gaza
Friday, July 25 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Corner of Chapel Hill and Foster Streets
CCB Plaza, Durham, NC
Join CPWJ members and partners as we hold a peaceful, healing space for people who wish to mourn the ongoing humanitarian nightmare in Gaza and commit to ending the escalating violence provoked by Israel’s ongoing occupation, which is supported by 3.5 billion U.S. taxpayer dollars.
The vigil will provide space and time to renew our hope for change through our prayers, wishes, songs, poems, and art and will be open respectful to all religious, spiritual, and human rights traditions.
A list of resources and actions will be provided so that every participant walks away with a clear idea of how to make a difference.
