(WASHINGTON, D.C., 7/29/14) -- The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, calls on all citizens of conscience to take part in a silent candlelight vigil in front of the White House on Wednesday, July 30 at 7 p.m. in memory of the Palestinians who have lost their lives in Israel's brutal assault against the people of Gaza.
Action requested: Modify the CAIR Eid ul-Fitr media advisory below for distribution to local media outlets. Just insert local Eid dates, times, locations, and contact information. Make sure to send a copy to the main daily newspaper "city desk," TV station "assignment desk," radio station "news director," and Associated Press local bureau "daybook editor."
Tell the president and Congress to demand Israel immediately halt its brutal campaign of collective punishment in Gaza and seek justice for the killing of hundreds and wounding of thousands of civilians.
This alert is provided to allow you an opportunity to communicate your concerns regarding the current crisis in Gaza to your elected officials.
