Muslim American Society (MAS): Part of the D.C March for Gaza

Category: Americas, Life & Society Topics: Gaza, Muslims, Palestine

On January 13th, 2024, over 400,000 protestors marched in Washington, D.C. to demand an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza, end unconditional U.S. funding for Israel's genocide against Gaza and the occupation of Palestine, and hold Israel accountable for war crimes committed against the Palestinian people and its continuous violations of international law.

The American Muslim Task Force for Palestine, in partnership with the ANSWER coalition, praised all who joined the largest protest ever for Palestine in the U.S. and thanked over 350 organizations that endorsed and answered their call to March on Washington for Gaza.

MAS United for Palestine

The historic march was a moment of reckoning for the movement for Palestine and a moment of reckoning for the Biden administration. The collective demands were clear: an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza, an end to the US aid for Israel, and for Israel to be held accountable for their violations of both US and international human rights.

With over 26,000 Palestinians killed in Gaza by Israel, 60k+ injured, and over 1.9 million internally displaced, the American Muslim Task Force for Palestine urges those who joined them to continue mobilizing and organizing.

The American Muslim Task Force on Palestine included: American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the Muslim American Society (MAS), Muslim Student Association-National (MSA), Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA), Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA), and Young Muslims (YM).
