On June 25, 2005 The Indianapolis Star reported, "When Jessica Pollock talks about the upcoming international town hall meeting, she gets excited about the possibility for peace in the Middle East -- and here in the Indianapolis area. Indianapolis is one of 40 sites of Sunday's live video conference on resolving the issues of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Speaking from Jerusalem and Washington, D.C., religious and civil leaders from across the globe will share their thoughts on achieving peace in the Middle East. 'You're hearing from both Palestinians and Israelis. And you're getting the interreligious aspect of it, too, hearing from Christians, Jews and Muslims,' says Pollock, one of the local organizers of the town hall meeting. 'It's a tremendous opportunity for people in Indianapolis to hear some very important speakers.'"
