Mariam C. Said, Member of the Advisory Board of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, invites you to an evening of Politics & Poetry with Nadia Hijab, Writer & Analyst Kathy Engel, Poet & long-time advocate for justice for Palestinians.
Palestinians dream of freedom, justice, and equality, and struggle to achieve these fundamental rights. How are these dreams expressed in activism and in words? How should we understand the present political moment? And what more can we do?
The late Edward Said was a founding member of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation - a nationwide coalition that has grown from a handful of individuals and organizations in 2001 to over 360 organizations and over 50,000 supporters today. The coalition provides a platform and channel for diverse efforts to ensure that our government applies international law to this conflict. For the past 10 years, the US Campaign has led the long-term, strategic work necessary to shift US policy.
Mariam, Nadia, and Kathy all serve on the Advisory Board of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation. Join them in an evening to sustain the work of the US Campaign, generously hosted by Salam Alrawi at his fabulous East Village restaurant.
