CMEP Bulletin: Conference Success, Exchanging Speeches, and more
CMEP’s fifth annual advocacy conference took place this week in Washington, DC. With more than 200 people in attendance during the three-day event, it was our largest advocacy conference yet, an amazing display of support for a just, secure, and sustainable peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Thank you to all of you who helped make that possible. A diverse group of experts, analysts, and faith leaders offered valuable insight through four plenary sessions and ten workshops that addressed topics ranging from the role of faith and religion in reconciliation to mapping potential borders for two future states.
CMEP supporters also visited about 90 congressional offices in 26 states to deliver a message of peace and U.S. leadership for a negotiated two-state solution. During a week when the conflict in the Holy Land was in the spotlight, the message CMEP supporters delivered was very important for members of Congress and their staff to hear. You can add your voice to the call for peace by writing your members of Congress today.
