We strongly support a permanent ceasefire in Gaza.

We call for humanitarian aid and the release of all hostages and denounce the violence inflicted upon both Palestinian and Israeli civilians. We condemn antisemitism, anti-Arab hate, and discrimination, and we strive for a world free of systemic racism. Our commitment is to education, understanding, and advocating for a just and lasting peace in the region, urging our government to redirect aid for that purpose.
