Grassroots Advocacy Training and Lobby Day, February 1-2, 2009, Washington, DC

REGISTER TODAY TO GAIN IMPORTANT SKILLS FOR YOUR ACTIVISM & MAKE AN IMPACT IN THE NEW CONGRESS!

The United States has long been the most dominant international player in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  As a result, U.S. citizens bear a deep responsibility to address our government’s role and support Palestinian and Israeli peace efforts.  This Grassroots Advocacy Training will provide both seasoned organizers and new activists with the skills and experience needed to make a real impact.

Join Interfaith Peace-Builders and the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation for a unique opportunity to make real change.  Your participation will enrich your understanding of the conflict and help build a strong grassroots U.S. movement for peace and justice in Palestine/Israel.

There has never been a better chance to make a change. The recent election has provided a new opportunity. Participants will gain access to new resources on United States aid to Israel and attend workshops led by experts in the field.  The lobby day corresponds with the first weeks of the new Congress and is a crucial time for citizens to have their voice heard in Washington.
