Urgent: Call to Action

We’re witnessing an active genocide in Gaza. We need a ceasefire and a humanitarian corridor to allow in aid.

In the latest turn of events, Israel, which has one of the most powerful militaries in the world,1Israel ranks among 10 most powerful countries in annual list; 4th strongest military,” The Times of Israel, Jan. 2, 2023. has vowed to reduce Gaza to rubble, and so far, they are moving steadfastly towards that goal.

The Israeli military announced that more than 1.1 million Gazans in the north need to immediately relocate to the south or be killed.2Israel-Hamas war live updates: Israel says fighting will intensify, Gaza’s sole power plant shuts down,” NBC News Updates, Oct. 11, 2023.

As of Oct. 15, at least 2,329 people have been killed in retaliatory strikes from Israel with another 9,714 more injured, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, with those numbers expected to climb.

Gaza, an open-air prison under blockade and siege for 16 years, is at a breaking point. Medical personnel and aid workers face huge barriers to delivering desperately needed supplies to the over two million trapped there. Israel has cut off lifelines of electricity, water, food, and fuel.3Gaza 'soon without fuel, medicine and food' - Israel authorities,” BBC News, Oct. 9, 2023.

It is horrific that civilians, Palestinian and Israeli, have borne the brunt of the tragedy we are witnessing. If we do not act now, the events of the Israeli military in Gaza will compound that horror to unimaginable proportions.

We need urgent action now to avoid the loss of precious human life. We must immediately de-escalate. And we must open a humanitarian corridor for aid and medical workers to save lives.


We need an immediate ceasefire in Gaza to stop the loss of life and allow humanitarian aid, medical attention, food, and water.
