The group leading the demonstration of thousands of protesters, the Jewish Voice for Peace, called for a ceasefire in Gaza amid the Israel-Hamas war. The war has resulted in the deaths of at least 4,000 Palestinians and Israelis since Oct. 7.

“The root of violence is oppression, and we’re here to say not in our names,” the organization posted to social media. “We have the power to stop the ongoing atrocities against Palestinians. We refuse to standby as the Israeli government commits genocide against Palestinians in Gaza. #ceasefirenow.”
