$20 suggested donation - no one will be turned away!
Janna Jihad, who is the world's youngest recognized journalist and press card holder, will be joining us along with Marc Lamont Hill for an evening of conversation about growing up in the village of Nabi Saleh in the West Bank and the role of Palestinian youth in resisting the Israeli occupation. Janna's cousin, Ahed Tamimi, was arrested at the age of 16 in December 2017 and imprisoned for 8 months on trumped up charges. She began reporting on the occupation when she was seven years old after two of her family members were murdered by Israeli soldiers.
We hope that you can join us Thursday for what will be an extraordinary opportunity to learn from Janna and hear her talk with Marc Lamont Hill about the current state of the struggle for Palestinian liberation.

Join our Palestinian Cultural Resistance Program!
We are deeply rooted in the Brooklyn community of Bay Ridge, the largest Palestinian and Arab neighborhood in New York City. Through dabke lessons (Palestinian folk dance), educational discussions, organizing workshops, rallies and more, we have been building a new collective space for youth and students from the community to become immersed in Palestinian art, culture and history as we build the movement for Palestinian liberation and return.
Even if you may not be able to physically show up, you can still help support our work in building the movement for Palestine in NYC by donating to our organization. All of the donations we receive go towards covering expenses for our community programs, rallies, conference, events and more. Even a small donation can go a long way to help cover the costs of renting space, buying supplies, and other necessary things that a grassroots organization like ours would otherwise be unable to afford. Thank you for your support!
