The Estria Foundation’s #WaterWrites and BTSMAP will hold an Emergency Response for Gaza community event. The event will include speakers, music, poetry, dance and an ART+ Silent Auction.  We hope that you will consider making a donation to help the people of Gaza cope with recent devastation, including 177 killed and more than 900 wounded, compounded by years of military siege and blockade.
