Your Actions Worked! Now Show Ms. Lauryn Your Support! 

Following an international campaign urging the Grammy-winning rapper and R&B singer to respect the Palestinian call to boycott Israel, Lauryn Hill announced yesterday that she has canceled her concert in Tel Aviv

Thank Ms. Lauryn for taking a stand for freedom, justice, and equality!

This campaign once again shows the power of grassroots organizing and how
actions you take can contribute to the global movement for Palestinian rights. More than 11,000 people asked Ms. Lauryn to cancel via petition; activists made creative songs and videos; and organizers collected and shared a series of letters from fans encouraging Ms. Lauryn to boycott. 

Now is the time to thank her to taking a stand for peace, justice, and equality.
