Unheard Voices From the Heart of Palestine

Saturday, September 23, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
First United Methodist Church, 1001 Pleasant St, Des Moines, IA

Whether you are new to the issue of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict or you have studied the topic for years, this symposium is for you.
Come and learn about:

  • America’s role in the Occupation
  • Faith perspectives on the conflict
  • Becoming active in peacemaking

The Middle East Peace Education Coalition (MEPEC) is guided by a belief in the worth of every individual.

Our mission is to work toward a just peace in Israel/Palestine by:
Changing US policies that have supported and continue to support the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands.

Affirming the human rights of all people to self-determination and to security within identified borders.

Recognizing the right and responsibility of the people of the region to decide on the governance of their state(s).

Committing to the principle that international law must be the framework for resolving the conflict.
