This is a rare opportunity for our organization along with some of our partners and friends to address the situation in Palestine in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. We will discuss important campaigns that promote nonviolence during the pandemic.
Panelists will include:
Raed writes, “In a world full of noise, I sit quietly and let the clicks of my keyboard speak for me. My name is Raed. I graduated from university with a degree in English language and literature from Al-Azhar University in Gaza. Thanks to a semester as an exchange student at Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania (USA), I have developed a better understanding of our world. My current mission is to tell new, different stories from Gaza in my role as outreach coordinator for We Are Not Numbers. It’s time I step up and be the voice of the voiceless ones, including myself. I started writing. I’ll be the noise now. No one can stop me.

Over the coming months, we will be hosting an impressive range of nonviolent activists, thinkers, and leaders. We hope that you will make our new webinar series a regular part of your week. Each week you will hear a powerful story of how people are using creative nonviolence in these difficult days.
