We believe that every human being is of sacred worth
Dear Sisters and Brothers: We have been asked to sign onto this statement created by the Religious Leaders Caucus North Bay Organizing Project calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. Please add your name to the petition as you wish using the links below.
We, as people of faith and community members committed to justice, collectively mourn the horrific loss of life and the continued violence in Israel and Gaza. In this tense moment, we choose to exercise our collective power to call for de-escalation and demand that our elected officials demonstrate restraint in policy decisions that intensify violence in the region.
We believe that every human being is of sacred worth. We are and will continue to be, committed to protecting the lives of all civilians, including the 2.2 million people of Gaza, half of whom are children. We condemn any further steps toward violence. We condemn withholding and limiting humanitarian aid. We grieve that our tax dollars are funding the escalation of violence.
Because of this, we join our voices with all, including elected officials and world leaders, who are demanding a bilateral ceasefire now.
We invite you to join us in calling upon our local elected officials to work for an immediate ceasefire.
