Delegations

The Sheer Horror of What I've Witnessed

Zaheer Mohiuddin was part of the Interfaith Network for Justice in Palestine delegation in July-August 2017. This delegation was co-sponsored by PPF, American Muslims for Palestine, Jewish Voice for Peace, and Interfaith Peace Builders. Zaheer continues to reflect on his time in Palestine, and he writes here about several of the people he met who have been arrested or killed since the delegation met them just over a month ago.

Activist Council members and friends of Presbyterian Peace Fellowship are invited to join us periodically for a Zoom conference call aiming to inform and equip us for the work of peacemaking.

How to Support the Water Protectors Right Now

One way that we can all surround the Water Protectors with love is by making calls to key stakeholders in the Dakota Access Pipeline. Even if you cannot go to Standing Rock or go to a Solidarity Action this week (there will be many with a Global Day of Action on Dec 1--we will update as we know more!), you can make calls or you can organize an action of your own.

En Route to Standing Rock

I write this as I’m sitting at the breakfast table of Abbi and Ben Heimach-Snipes in Chicago, where we stayed last night after six of us drove from New York City to Chicago. Once we got here we met Colleen Earp, who flew in to Chicago from Richmond, Virginia. In a few hours we will be commissioned at the Friendship Presbyterian Church in Chicago and then the six of us from New York, plus Ben and Colleen will head toward Minneapolis, where we’ll have dinner at the Church of All Nations and pick up three others in our delegation before heading on to Standing Rock.

"We are ready to protect our homeland"

May 28, 2016 

Waking up Saturday morning to the birds chirping in the mountains of the village of Gullan was such a powerful reminder of the beauty found in this region’s land and people. Kaka Latif and his family so generously offered us their home for the night and provided us with incredible meals and hospitality.

General Assembly Reflections from Delegates to Iraqi Kurdistan

I am disappointed that the overture for fossil fuel divestment did not pass through GA 222. We have an urgent call to stand alongside those struggling to survive the devastating ramifications of the oil and gas industries. I, along with my delegation team and others in the PCUSA, will work to continue the call for divestment. It's difficult for me to not feel like we have failed our friends - family - who are impacted daily. Those whose livelihood, water, and life have been compromised by corporations invested in fossil fuel. Those who so vulnerably shared with me the hardships and death in their community revolving around oil excavation. But, this is still the beginning.
