Register NOW for Exciting March 5-7 Events in DC!

Spaces are filling up quickly, and registration closes on Tuesday, March 1!

As grassroots movements for democracy sweep the Middle East, now is the perfect time for you to come to Washington, DC, to build your activist skills and advocate to change U.S. policy toward Palestine/Israel to support human rights, international law, and equality.

We are excited to co-sponsor -- with two of our member organizations: the American Friends Service Committee and Interfaith Peace-Builders -- three days of exciting events:

On Sunday, March 6 and Monday, March 7, everyone is invited to the IFPB/US Campaign Grassroots Advocacy Training & Lobby Day 2011.

Watch our two-minute promotional video here:

The event will provide seasoned organizers and new activists with the skills and experience needed to make a real impact.

As the US-led 'peace process' hits new snags, the importance of grassroots action has never been greater! The latest election provides a new opportunity for citizens to engage United States policy.  

Confirmed speakers include:

Anna Baltzer, Jennifer Bing-Canar, Mark Braverman, Mike Daly, Joe Groves, Nadia Hijab, Adam Horowitz, Andrew Kadi, Daoud Nassar, Loubna Qutami, and Josh Ruebner.
