You are invited to join a global campaign, #DignityIsPriceless, which seeks to uphold the rights and dignity of Palestinian refugees in light of dramatic reductions to the funding of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) recently announced by the United States. Thank you for your prayers, advocacy, and donations.
