Action Table, Sun., Sept. 7: Human Rights at Home, and in Iraq

Each week we put our faith into action.

This week, we are writing a letter to President Obama about the escalating human rights abuses taking place in Iraq, calling on him to use his authority to ensure our active cooperation with the United Nations, and other appropriate international channels, to exhaust all possible nonviolent, diplomatic, and political interventions in bringing about a resolution to the crisis in Iraq.

Join us this also as we speak out for peace with justice at home and abroad. We will answer the Muslim Public Affairs Council’s call and join their #ISpeakOutBecause campaign this Sunday at the Action Table — you will have an opportunity to voice your conscience on human rights on a piece of paper, and with your permission we’ll post it to social media!

Please visit the Action Table on Sunday for more details, or contact Francisco Garcia at (626) 583-2766.

I will be starting my senior year at Chapman University this fall, with a double major in Music Education and Vocal Performance.
