A rally and march will begin at 4:30 p.m. today at Reaney Park to stand in solidarity with Palestinians.

The event is co-sponsored by the Pullman Islamic Center and the Pullman Community Congregational United Church of Christ, according to the post

Scheduled guest speakers at the event include Rev. Steve Van Kuiken, Raed Alsawaier, Imam for the Pullman Islamic Center, and Asif Chaudhry, vice president of WSU’s Office of International Programs, according to a post on Pullman Islamic Center’s Facebook page.
