You are invited to join Northfielders for Justice in Palestine/Israel for our annual Fall Event.
We are pleased to have two dynamic and informed speakers for our event:
Mariam El-Khatib is an active member of the Minnesota chapter of American Muslims for Palestine. She was previously a member of Students for Justice in Palestine at the University of Minnesota where she helped pass divestment on campus. She will focus on issues surrounding Palestinian identity, drawing on her own experience as a Palestinian and living in Palestine under Israeli occupation.
Sylvia Schwarz is a member of Jewish Voice for Peace and of Minnesota Break the Bonds Campaign and she has been a frequent participant in Twin Cities discussions of Palestinian issues. She will focus on issues surrounding the BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanctions) movement.
Jonathan Hill of NJP will moderate the discussion, and there will be ample time for your questions or comments; Jonathan will explain the easy way to send them in via the Chat feature on Zoom.
