First Baptist Church
305 N. California Avenue, Palo Alto
Special guests Tarek Abuata and Ghassan J. Tarazi will share their first-hand assessments of the situation in Palestine. Both are founding members of the Palestinian Christian Alliance for Peace, a non-sectarian, ecumenical alliance of Palestinian-American Christians that seeks to provide a clear voice and presence in faith-based communities in the United States. They believe that achieving peace requires ensuring justice and human rights for Palestinians. American churches can and must play a leading role in advocating for a just peace among all people in the region.
