The youth who work with AFSC in Palestine face many challenges because of occupation and Israeli Apartheid policies. Over the last year the occupation has become more entrenched. Home demolitions and forced displacement events have increased. Gaza was attacked and remains under blockade. Life for many has become harder. During this session AFSC’s staff from Palestine will highlight some issues they are facing on the ground. Their discussion will be complemented by a presentation by U.S. based advocacy staff about how you can take action to end abuses and bring change.
Facilitators: Dawood Hammoudi, Palestine Program Director, and Mike Merryman-Lotze, Middle East Program Director
