No Child Behind Bars: Living Resistance from US to Palestine
February 7, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Combining grassroots community engagement with municipal boycotts, community actions, testimony, and education campaigns, the tour–No Child Behind Bars: Living Resistance From the US to Palestine–explores state violence, particularly the criminalization and detention of youth in Palestine and the US. The tour focuses on the interests and powers that reinforce these systems, with the goal of destabilizing them and breaking them down.
The tour will feature three speakers:
- Ahed Tamimi is 15 years old, charismatic, and articulate. She will be speaking from her home in Nabi Saleh, Occupied West Bank.
- Amanda Weatherspoon is a Unitarian Universalist minister and Black liberation activist in the Bay Area. Her ministry is centered on collective liberation with an intersectional approach.
- Nadya Tannous is a writer and organizer in the Bay Area. She has researched the detention of Palestinian minors since 2013.
