CAIR and community partners plan to take part in a visual action intended to build on the demand for an immediate permanent ceasefire in the genocide of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and urge members of congress to cosponsor House Resolution 786 Ceasefire Now and introduce it in the Senate. Activists plan to stand and hold letters spelling out the words “ceasefire now.”
