Learn. Pray. Act. Repeat.

Letting your Members of Congress know your concerns about peace in the Holy Land is the most important action you can take as an advocate.

Sharing why you care is effective in helping to make your concerns have an impact. Be specific about what moved you to be concerned.

Say why peace matters to you, not why it should matter to them. Click here to take action today.
