CMEP urges us to help our friends make their voices heard: lift the closure of Gaza

From Churches for Middle East Peace...

Your Help is Needed!

Get your friends at church, coworkers, and any other friends of peace to make their voice heard!

So far, more than 1200 new and long time CMEP supporters have signed the petition to President Obama asking him to work on behalf of Gaza's civilians and end the humanitarian crisis by using ". . . America's unique relationship with Israel to persuade it to lift the closure of its border crossing with Gaza now."

Even more people are needed to demand an end to the blockade of Gaza.Print out a copy of the letter and a paper petition (links below) and gather signatures at church, work, committee meetings, on the street, or wherever else friends of peace are. Your efforts will strengthen our common voice and help Gazans.
