The Pilgrimage for Peace March 07, 2024
As the United States vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for a permanent ceasefire in Gaza, a group of multifaith peace activists began a journey from Philadelphia’s Mother Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church heading for the White House.  Several national organizations supported the effort, including the National Council of Churches, the AME Conference, and Rabbis for Ceasefire.  

In this episode of The Take podcast from Al Jazeera, Malika Bilal offers a closer look at the history and advocacy of Black churches in calling for peace in Gaza with Rev Stephen A. Green, an ordained minister and one of the nation's leading human and civil rights leaders.
