The meeting scheduled for April 13th at the Ramallah Club of Detroit, will be among the first of such presentations. The constituencies, include, but are not limited to, Christians, Environmentalists, Hispanic Americans, African Americans, Native Americans, Labor, Educators, Veterans, Democrats and Republicans.

The goal of the presentations will be to (a) establish a core base of supporters within different cities and states across the country and (b) enlist supporters to join and expand participation in the Five for Palestine Campaign, which asks individuals to do five simple things:

5) Recruit 5 family members, friends or colleagues to join the Campaign and give you 5 for Palestine by doing the exact same things, thereby expanding the number of Americans who support a balanced and equitable U.S. policy toward Israel and Palestine.
