US Palestinian Community Network (USPCN) in Chicago and the Palestinian American Community Center are proud to host Sahar Francis, General Director of Addameer, directly from Occupied Palestine!
ADDAMEER (Arabic for conscience) Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association is a Palestinian non-governmental institution that works to support Palestinian political prisoners. The center offers free legal aid to political prisoners, advocates their rights at the national and international level, and works to end torture and other violations of prisoners’ rights through monitoring, legal procedures and solidarity campaigns.
Addameer was the leading organization supporting the historic Dignity Strike in Palestine, while USPCN and PACC helped mobilize the Palestinian and Arab diaspora community in Chicago including family of striking prisoners.
The event program will include an introduction to the organizing work of USPCN, followed by a presentation from Sahar Francis, a cultural performance, and ending with a Question & Answer session. This will be in Arabic with English translation. We look forward to seeing you there!
