Cairo Declaration from Free Gaza Coalition

As Christians, and as Presbyterians, we are called to work for justice and peace. We are called to be prophets in a time when the world is in turmoil and torn by fear, terrorism, war, globalization, and more. The advocacy work of the Israel/Palestine Mission Network calls us to be prophetic within our denomination and to be collaborative in our work with partner advocacy organizations working for justice and peace in Israel/Palestine.
