Building on the momentum of the Presbyterian General Assembly a couple of weeks ago, we are now in Austin for the 79th General Convention of the Episcopal Church!

We’re looking forward to how the week unfolds and will keep you updated! We invite you to follow EPF-PIN on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates and developments as well as the hashtags #GC79, #Divest, and #UnOccupy. 

Also check out EPF-PIN’s toolkit with various resources to support educational efforts on Palestine in faith-based communities and ways to take action.
