Panelists (Q & A to follow):

Nyle Fort, Newark-based minister and activist & Fatin Jarara, Al-Awda NY: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition

In the wake of yet more police shootings of people of color in the U.S. and Israel’s recent massacres in Gaza, this panel event will discuss the commonalities between Black and Palestinian movements for freedom, equality, and justice — from the Movement for Black Lives in the U.S. to the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel (BDS).

As part of the struggle for racial justice in SOMA, please join us to explore how connecting these efforts makes us stronger together.

Co-hosted by: SOMA for Palestine, Al-Awda NY: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, American Muslims for Palestine – NJ, Jews for Palestinian Right of Return, Palestinian American Community Center.
