IN HONOR OF MARLA RUZICKA, FAIZ ALI SALIM, AND VICTIMS OF WAR IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN, CIVIC CALLS FOR VIGILS ON TUESDAY, MAY 3

Washington, DC -- The Campaign for Innocent Victims in
Conflict (CIVIC), the organization founded by Marla
Ruzicka, the 28-year-old aid worker who was killed in a
suicide bombing in Iraq last week, is calling on people
throughout the United States to honor and promote Marla
and Faiz's work by commemorating their life work and
taking action on behalf of civilian casualties of war.

''Marla's story is one of compassion, and courage, and I
think what she would want more than anything is for us to
continue her mission and shine a spotlight on victims of
war,'' said April Pedersen, the US Campaign Manager of
CIVIC.

CIVIC is asking people to hold vigils in their communities
on Tuesday, May 3, to bring attention to civilian deaths
and injuries caused by war. CIVIC is asking communities
throughout the country to create the most beautiful vigils
possible, including candles, flowers, and photos, in an
effort to bring attention to the immense scale of human
suffering that war brings.

''Marla was a tireless advocate for innocent victims of
war, and now we have to be tireless advocates for the
cause that was closest to her heart. Let's create
beautiful vigils throughout the country, raise money on
her behalf, and make sure CIVIC's work is continued,'' said
April Pedersen.

There will also be a memorial in Washington, DC on May 14.

Vigils can be organized online at:
