Artists for Gaza Benefit

Since July 6, Israeli forces have been relentlessly bombing and shelling Gaza. July 18 marked the launch of their ground invasion. Palestinian civilians are bearing the brunt of the assault, as hospitals, schools, homes, and other vital locations are targeted. The area, already fragile due to previous Israeli bombing campaigns, is in severe crisis.

More than 500 Palestinians have been killed since the beginning of the assault and 3,000 injured as the tolls continue to rise. Most of the victims have been women and children. Water, food, and medicine are all in short supply.

Here in the United States, it's easy to feel helpless. But even so, there are things we can do. You are invited to Artists For Gaza, a benefit concert and art show featuring local visual artists, poets, and musicians who are all donating their time and talent to raise money for a relief organization working on the ground in Gaza.

All admission proceeds will be donated to Middle East Children's Alliance. Our donation will provide food, milk, and medicine to children and families in Gaza, as well as help purchase medicine and supplies needed by doctors at the Red Crescent Society and Al-Awda Hospital. They also provide psychological services for children on an ongoing basis.

This organization has been chosen not only for its services but for its analysis: it serves from a human-rights perspective that calls for an end to the Israeli occupation, through methods such as arms embargoes, boycotts, divestments, and sanctions.

This event is sober, family-friendly, and open to people from all walks of life who wish for peace, equality, and an end to oppression and occupations everywhere.
