Gaza Ceasefire Pilgrimage 

March 24 - March 30

This Lent, a global movement is walking in prayerful solidarity with the people of Gaza.

In response to national and international calls for a ceasefire in Gaza, everyone is invited to join in solidarity with Red Letter Christians, Rabbis for Ceasefire, Freedom Road, Fellowship of Reconciliation, Society for Faith and Justice, Rainbow Coalition and others in a pilgrimage in Fort Collins.

We will walk every day from  beginning at 3 p.m., starting on Palm Sunday, March 24, through Saturday, March 30—walking from City Hall, 201 Laporte Ave., continuing to our elected representatives’ and senators’ offices, and returning to City Hall (about 3 miles).

The total distance of our walks from Sunday through Saturday is about the same distance as from Gaza City to Rafah. In solidarity with our national hosts, ours will be a quiet walk. Persons are encouraged to bring signs.

All people of every faith and those of good will are encouraged to join in the pilgrimage. 

We call for: 

An immediate and permanent ceasefire
Unfettered and robust entry of humanitarian aid
The immediate release of all hostages
An end to Israel’s systems of occupation and apartheid
The elimination/restriction of U.S. military assistance to Israel such that   it does not fund violations of human rights, including collective         punishment and the targeting of civilians

When: Sunday, March 24 through Saturday, March 30th

Where: From Fort Collins City Hall to the offices of our members of Congress and back again. 

For more information, contact Janie Stein.
