50 Years Too Long: A CMEP Advocacy Event – A Pathway to Peace in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories
Jun 4–6 2017
Sunday – Tuesday
June 2017 marks 50 year of the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, an occupation which threatens the security of Israel and imposes harsh burdens on the Palestinian people.
Hosted by Churches for Middle East Peace, “50 Years Too Long” is an advocacy summit for American Christians to gather, learn, and advocate for constructive ways to pursue a just and sustainable peace in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories (oPt).
Participants will learn how to advocate for an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza and put that learning into practice by visiting government representatives to promote a solution that advances security and self-determination for Israelis and Palestinians.
Foundation for Middle East President Lara Friedman will be participating on a panel Tuesday, June 6th.
