Go to Forty three members of Congress have now called for a ceasefire.

Go to   Every fourth Thursday of November, indigenous peoples native to settler colonial states of the U.S. begin the day in silent prayer and ceremony at sunrise, and fast to mourn the genocide violently enacted on them to steal the land they were in stewardship with since time immemorial.

You may fast from sunrise to sunset, or otherwise in accordance with your community’s practices and traditions.
