Nov 9: Calling for a World Without Walls

Mural created for the World Without Walls gathering in November 2019. Artist: Chris Gazaleh

There are over 70 border walls across the globe. In 2017 Mexican and Palestinian activists called for a Global Movement for World Without Walls, uniting people worldwide to resist all walls of exclusion, expulsion and exploitation. The Bay Area World Without Walls Coalition formed in 2018, to expand the work of uniting organizations working for justice and liberation, and against walls of all types. Together we are building a world of freedom, respect and dignity for all. 

Coalition members include: Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity, Friends of Sabeel North America, Lakeshore Avenue Baptist Church, Jewish Voice for Peace, Arab Resource and Organizing Center, Middle East Children’s Alliance, and East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy / Faith Alliance for a Moral Economy.
