Pilgrimage for Peace: Philadelphia, PA to Washington, DC #CeasefireNow

Join a coalition of faith leaders, artists, and activists on a Pilgrimage for Peace to demand a Ceasefire in Gaza.

From February 14 to February 21, 2024, faith leaders, activists, and artists will march from Independence Hall in Philadelphia, PA to the White House in Washington, DC to urge President Biden call for an end to the war in Palestine.

Moved by our conscience, we stand united to address the ongoing tragedy in Gaza, where the death toll has reached over 24,000, the deadliest conflict in the 21st century. As we continue to mourn the loss of innocent Israeli lives on October 7, we firmly believe that responding to violence with more violence is not the solution.

We urge President Biden and Congress to halt weapons funding to Israel and, instead, channel efforts towards increasing humanitarian aid to Palestine. It is our collective responsibility to advocate for a peaceful resolution and uphold the principles of justice and compassion.

We will either sow seeds of nonviolence today or reap nonexistence tomorrow.
