Citizen Hearings on the impact of U.S. Weapons used on civilians in Gaza, during Israel"s operation Cast Lead. The hearings were organized by AFSC.
In 1949, because of the experience AFSC gained in helping to resettle hundreds of thousands of refugees and displaced persons following World War II, the United Nations asked the Committee to organize relief efforts for Palestinian Arab refugees coming into the Gaza Strip. This continued until the United Nations Relief Works Agency began its operations on May 1, 1950.
