Join our call for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas conflict.

As Catholics, we believe in the sanctity of all life. At this time of immense pain, grief, and fear of an escalating conflict. Maryknoll leaders signed a letter to President Biden on Nov. 9, asking for his support of an immediate ceasefire, de-escalation, and restraint by all involved, and to prioritize the release of hostages.

Call on your senators and representative, as well as President Biden, and urge them to call for a ceasefire and de-escalation of the conflict.

Suggested script:

As a person of faith, I believe in the sanctity of all life. I am very concerned about the death and destruction in the escalating Israel Hamas conflict.

Only a ceasefire will stop the loss of civilian life in Gaza, allow humanitarian aid to reach those in need, many of whom are injured, sick, and starving; fend off the likelihood of increased regional violence; and create an atmosphere to resume negotiations for the release of remaining hostages held by Hamas, as well as Palestinian prisoners held without due process of law. There can be no military solution to the conflict.

I ask that you work towards an immediate ceasefire.
