2017 Advocacy Summits
Choose Hope 2017: A Middle East Advocacy Summit for Students and Young Professionals
November 12 – 14, 2017 | Washington, D.C.
Co-sponsored by Millennial Voices for Peace (MVP) and Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP), Choose Hope 2017 provided a holistic space for millennials – including, college, seminary and graduate students as well as young professionals- who wished to engage in a national campaign for peace and justice in the Holy Land.
As part of Choose Hope 2017 millennials and young professionals engaged in a national campaign for peace and justice in the Holy Land. Participants were part of creating a dialogue and space for hearing stories of hope and inspiration and learned how to advocate for peace and justice with their representatives. Add your voice to this movement for a lasting peace, justice, and equality for all Israelis and Palestinians. Join a future Advocacy Summit! Together, may we Choose Hope.
Choose Hope 2017 was co-sponsored by Millennial Voices for Peace (MVP) and Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP).
