Come join British MP George Galloway and experience a side of Islam often ignored in mainstream media while helping to support a worthy cause. Viva Palestina aims to send 500 U.S. citizens into the Gaza strip on the 4th of July equipped with humanitarian and medical supplies, and needs our support.

Along with Galloway, two renowned spiritual leaders will share the stage to offer a compelling and inspiring narration of Isra and Mi'raj. Isra and Mi'raj is the miraculous journey through the heavens embarked on by Prophet Muhammad from the holy city of Jerusalem. Imam Khalid Latif and Sayed Ammar Nakshawani will offer their audience more than a beautiful retelling of a momentous event. They will explore the historical and spiritual significance of Isra and Mi'raj-- and more importantly, its implications for our world today.


Tickets are $25/$15 for students.

All proceeds will go to Viva Palestina. Funds raised will be handled and administered by The Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization (IFCO).
