Terrible crimes against humanity are being committed in front of our eyes. Nobody of conscience can remain silent. Those of us living in the United States -- the country that enables Israel's crimes against the people of Gaza, with political, financial, military, and moral support -- have a particular responsibility to resist and make clear these crimes are not being done in our name.
On August 14 we will bring diverse views and perspectives - including on the nature and role of Israel -- but a shared 
commitment that Israel's ongoing war crimes in Gaza must stop immediately. In doing so, we will strengthen the foundation from which to call forth new and expanding waves of protest until these crimes being perpetrated against the people of Gaza by Israel stop.
