As has been our practice, these levels confer no benefit beyond the knowledge that you are actively engaged in this work. All sponsors of Rochester Witness for Palestine share an equal status.
In 2020, we picked up the work previously done by Christians Witnessing for Palestine. Our fundraising provides a base for our efforts to inform people in our area of the harsh conditions and many injustices facing Palestinians today – illegal settlements on Palestinian land, home demolitions, arrest and detention of children, and suppression of rights guaranteed by international law. And with this understanding comes a desire and a commitment to act.
We seek your support to enable us to continue to speak, to educate, and to act in support of our Palestinian brothers and sisters.
Since we thought you'd prefer us to put the full amount of your donation to work in advocacy, we don't offer online transactions that would require us to pay a fee. (Please tell us through the contact section if you'd like us to reconsider this policy and offer online donations through a credit card.)
