For over 5 years, 5 Palestinian Americans, known as “The Holy Land 5” have languished in Federal Prison. Victims to the ever-growing over-reach of counter-terrorism programs, the five were prosecuted under vague material support claims for their public philanthropic and charitable work to support children in Gaza each are serving between 15 and 65 years in Federal Prison. Ghassan Elashi is currently held in a secretive Federal Prison Program called the Communications Management Unit at USP Marion, IL.

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to conference on a ruling regarding the Holy Land 5 this upcoming Friday or Monday. This is their very last legal remedy outside of a presidential pardon. Your support is needed to drive home the importance of a restorative ruling in this case.

The press conference will be accompanied by a rally before & after, please invite everyone you know.
