As UFPJ honors the 50th Anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington, U.S. Navy Ships approach Syria with the threat of an imminent attack. We can’t help but think back to the words of Dr. Martin Luther King about the travesty of war. Dr. King stated that “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
Please take action and make your voice heard. Let’s stop a US attack in Syria before it starts.
