Late last week, the Museum of Children's Art in Oakland (MOCHA) rightly decided to cancel the scheduled "Child's View from Gaza" exhibit. The exhibit, sponsored by a well-known political advocacy organization, contains violent images that demonize and dehumanize an entire ethnic and religious population and has no place in a community-based museum dedicated to serving young children, including three, four and five year olds.
Unfortunately, MOCHA is now under attack by individuals who would prefer to see this provocative exhibit at a children’s museum. They are being inundated with letters and petitions to reinstate the exhibit and their Facebook page has been filled with hateful, anti-Israel messages.
In addition to sending your own letter, please share the link below with your friends and colleagues in order to mobilize the entire network.
