If you can't make it, make a donation directly in support of the Adalah-NY for Gaza Team. If you do register and join the Adalah-NY for Gaza team, all donations to your page will also count towards our team goal. Last year we raised $3,000 for UNRWA. This year our goal is to raise $5,000 and with your help we know we can do it.
March 30th marks the one year anniversary of the Great March of Return by Palestinians in Gaza demanding an end to the brutal siege and illegal blockade of Gaza and the right of all Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties. March 30 also marks the 43rd anniversary of Palestinian Land Day. Land Day commemorates the killing of six Palestinians citizens of Israel during strikes and marches in 1976 in protest of large scale expropriation of Palestinian-owned land by the state of Israel.
Join us, the Adalah-NY for Gaza Team, and walk/run in support of all Palestinian refugees in Gaza and around the world. Let Palestinians and the world know that we support the Palestinian struggle for freedom, justice, and equality.
