In these terrible days, JVP is heartened to see the massive growth in the global movement to demand justice for Palestinians and an end to Israel’s current assault, which has now left over 600 Palestinians dead, including 100 children. As a part of this movement, we affirm the values we see reflected in the vast majority of our allies and partners to building a multiracial, interfaith movement that is strongly committed to realizing justice, equality, and safety for all people.

My name is Safa’, I am a mom of three little girls, Zeena, Yasmeen, and Leena. I live in Ramallah but am originally from Gaza. I wrote this letter Sunday night, after a long and bloody day – one of many. I want you to know what it’s like here – and what my family is telling me Gaza is like.
