CJP is calling for an emergency rally this Sunday against Israel’s escalated violence in Gaza and Jerusalem. This wave of violence that is being unleashed on #AlAqsa #SheikhJarrah #Silwan and #Gaza is not new, it is a part of a long and brutal occupation by zionist forces that seeks to terriorize and displace the indigenous Palestinian population. We must take a stand. Join the Coalition for Justice in Palestine Chicago THIS Sunday, May 16th at 1pm at Michigan & Ida B Wells dr. Say NO to Israeli violence! See you there!

There will be three buses leaving from the Mosque Foundation. More details to come.

The Coalition for Justice in Palestine is made up of American Muslims for Palestine-Chicago, United States Palestinian Community Network (UCPSN), Students for Justice in Palestine- Chicago (SJP), Al-Nahda, Palestinian American Community Center, and Palestinian American Council

There are no stairs, but the grass median can be harder to navigate when wet, so please reach out if you would like to confirm some support and solidarity around mobility.

Neurological diversity is expected and welcome. That should go without saying, but we need to keep saying it!

Moms United is committed to the abolition of prisons and police, and if that’s not where you’re at, but support survivors and want to learn more, know that you are very welcome!
