The children of Susiya first started making their Pinwheels for Peace in 2015

Here is the invitation to Palestinian communities to ask them to participate in Pinwheels for Peace and send one child and their mother or father to our fourth annual #ICareAboutPeace Palestinian Children's Briefing to Congress.  In honor of International Peace Day, we asked everyone’s help to bring Palestinian children from villages at risk of demolition in the West Bank and from Gaza to present their Pinwheels for Peace. All U.S. visas have come through! Our #ICareAboutPeace Palestinian Children's Briefing to Congress is being scheduled for early February, 2019!
