Ceasefire Now: Grassroots Advocacy Days Spring 2024

Tue April 16 - Thu April 18

Ceasefire Now Grassroots Advocacy Days

Join MAPA on APRIL 16 – 18 in Washington, DC and online.   

Congress is hearing from the pro-peace, pro-ceasefire majority and is STILL dragging its feet – even as the war continues to claim tens of thousands of Palestinian lives, life-saving aid is impeded, innocent people die from starvation and the International Court of Justice has warned that urgent and immediate actions must be taken to protect Palestinians from genocide. This is unacceptable – we must stand up for peace and justice.

We HAVE to make Congress act! Please join us for meetings on Capitol Hill, or online, to educate Members of Congress and their staff and to advocate for pathways to peace and justice.

MAPA will focus on the days April 16-18 for our lobby meetings, and we urge you to join us.  Different groups in the national coalition will be active over the two week period from April 9-19.

There will be Grassroots Advocacy Training sessions on April 3 at 6:15pm and on April 4 at 8:00 pm Eastern.  Sign up for the advocacy days using this link, then contact info@masspeaceaction.org to join one of the training sessions.

Sign up here and Speak Truth to Power!
