Join the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice (RCF) in Seattle on Saturday, March 17, 2018, to remember Rachel Corrie and celebrate fifteen years of Palestinian solidarity and community organizing! In honor of 15 years of dedicated work around the globe, the Rachel Corrie Foundation wishes to raise $15,000 to support the programs that carry on Rachel’s vision, spirit, and creative energy!
This fundraising event will feature guest speakers Huwaida Arraf, Palestinian-American human rights activist, lawyer, and cofounder of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), and Cindy and Craig Corrie, founders of the Rachel Corrie Foundation and parents of Rachel Corrie. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear first-hand accounts of Rachel Corrie and the work of the International Solidarity Movement, what the last 15 years have yielded in terms of struggle and victory for the Palestinian people, the challenges of holding the Israeli and US governments accountable, and the impact of grassroots organizing.
There will be a Q&A session with the guest speakers, and the opportunity to purchase copies of Rachel Corrie’s book, Let Me Stand Alone, signed by Cindy & Craig Corrie.
Doors open at 12:30 pm, with light refreshments served. Programming will begin promptly at 1 pm.
Tickets are free, but a donation to the Rachel Corrie Foundation is strongly encouraged to sustain the work carried out in Rachel’s name. All guests must have a reserved ticket due to venue capacity restrictions.
