Important Upcoming Events
In response to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, a broad coalition of local Philadelphia groups* and artists have come together to raise money for the people of Gaza and lift our spirits through an evening of family-friendly activities as well as music, song, and performance art dedicated to the people of Gaza. Proceeds will go to KinderUSA and Islamic Relief Fund, which will provide direct humanitarian relief to the people of Gaza.
Come celebrate the indomitable spirit of sumud (Arabic for steadfastness) of the Palestinian people.
