Join us at The People’s Forum for Growing Solidarity and Commitment: What’s Next for the Palestine Movement?
Join the Center for Constitutional Rights, Rawa Creative Palestinian Communities Fund, Adalah Justice Project, and Baladna Association for Arab Youth in person or virtually for a public panel discussion on the Palestine Movement we will be hosting in New York City on Tuesday, October 11, at 6:30 p.m. ET, at The People's Forum.
This panel will address questions such as: What is next for our collective organizing? How can we deepen the relationships we have built, learn from each other, grow our circles, and strengthen our common political visions? How can we claim power on a global scale? How will we resource our next steps? What should be the features and action points of our alliance, and how might we start to build deeper foundations for our common struggles? How shall we resource this work and consolidate more meaningful organizing and ecology for our political action and intersectional solidarity?
Our Executive Director Vince Warren and Advocacy Director Nadia Ben-Youssef will be joining Soheir Asaad of the Rawa Creative Palestinian Communities Fund, Nidaa Nassar of the Baladna Association for Arab Youth, and Sandra Tamari of the Adalah Justice Project as speakers.
