DEAR GAZA Block Party

  • 2324 Lyndale Ave S Minneapolis, MN, 55405 United States (map)

DEAR GAZA is an inspiring artist showcase and fundraiser that houses a grassroots community which fosters international humanitarian issues through local initiatives. This year we are honored to host our 3rd annual DEAR GAZA block party. This family friendly event hosts spoken word poetry, dance, interactive art making, food (from WSK), live music, and more from conscious artists in solidarity with the Gaza strip. Last year, thanks to local humanitarians like you, we were able to raise $30,000 for Gaza. This in ital investment was then turned into 1.3 million dollars worth of medical supplies by America Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA) through their in-kind medical and relief program, which delivers critical, donated medical supplies and health care equipment to local organizations.
