The Social Justice Committee of the Washington Waldorf School is convening a community discussion that will include background history of Palestine and Palestinians, US policy in the Middle East and its impact on Palestinian rights, what’s different and what’s not about Trump’s Middle East policy, and why we call Israeli policy towards the Palestinians “apartheid.” We’ll talk about racism, white supremacy and anti-semitism, issues affecting Palestinians living in the United States, and why criticism of Israel is not anti-semitic.
Speakers will include IPS Fellow & Jewish Voice for Peace board member Phyllis Bennis, Rev. Graylan Hagler of Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ, Omar Baddar of the Arab-American Institute, and the evening will be moderated by Katea Stitt of WPFW and Dr. Irene Callis who teaches in American University’s Critical Race, Gender and Culture Collaborative, who are both part of the Washington Waldorf School’s Social Justice Committee.
RSVP is required by calling 301229-6107, ext. 101, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please state your name and the number of people who will be attending.
