Global Minnesota is deeply saddened by the tragic events unfolding in and around Israel and Gaza this past week and strongly condemns the appalling terrorist attacks committed by Hamas. It is difficult to witness the horrific loss of innocent lives and the suffering of the survivors across the region whose lives have been torn apart.  We grieve for the lives lost and for the families impacted. As an organization dedicated to bringing people together, it is all the more painful to watch events which continue to divide people.

As we confront the pain and division of the past and present, we must maintain our resolve to see a different future. We remain committed to the idea that citizen to citizen diplomacy and connections can advance understanding and provide a pathway forward for peace and dignity in our world.

Please consider supporting these organizations which are providing aid to the area:
