The Instagram post in question details a step-by-step guide for people to follow so they can help with the efforts to call for peace in Israel. The campaign is called, “Demand a cease-fire in Israel and Palestine.” The campaign involves three steps; the first one calls for the registration of votes alongside thousands of others. The next step called for people to call Congress demanding support for the cease-fire. 

As the final step in the campaign, people have to send letters to their respective congressperson demanding support for the movement. Besides the campaign, Maryum shared screen grabs of tweets from prominent names and organizations from across the globe, addressing the situation in Israel. While Marum has joined the cause recently, Mayweather stood up in support of Israel earlier.
