Spring 2020 with Combatants for Peace. SPECIAL DIGITAL EVENT.
April 7, 2020, 1:30-2:30 pm Eastern
Join Rev. Dr. Mae Elise Cannon, Executive Director of Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP) and speakers from Combatants for Peace as they host a dialogue about constructive conflict, peace, advocacy, and the reality of life in Israel and Palestine.
The occupation of the Palestinian territories impacts people living on all sides of the conflict including both Israelis and Palestinians. Understanding the geopolitics, social considerations, and other aspects of the conflict demands that we look beyond the headlines into the daily realities of people living on the ground.
This conversation will take place during Holy Week and the night before Passover. We will include a discussion of how our religious contexts play a role in this work. We are also gathering during the continued uncertainties regarding COVID-19. The conversation will include ways in which this global pandemic is disproportionately impacting Palestinians already living under occupation.
For years, CMEP has brought Pilgrimage to Peace into churches, universities, synagogues, mosques, and community centers across the USA and Canada. For spring 2020, we are inviting you to join us digitally from wherever you may be as we continue to elevate the voices of those working for peace so that we can advocate for justice.
