In this 50th year of the Israeli Occupation, CPWJ organized and collaborated to bring 10 educational programs this Spring, reaching more than 680 people within faith communities and universities throughout the Triangle. In February, CPWJ screened Al Helm: Martin Luther King in Palestine at the Highland Memorial Church’s Third Tuesdays Forum in Raleigh. The documentary shows parallels between the civil rights struggles of African Americans and the liberation struggles of Palestinians [read more=”Click here to Read More” less=”Read Less”] March programs were collaborative; First with an
ecumenical team of clergy and laity to bring the Rev Dr. Mitri Raheb to 3 Triangle towns. His vision of hope through social and educational programs in Bethlehem helps Palestinians cope with decades of Occupation with the belief that enables them not to despair. You can read more about Mitri here. Second, in partnership with our local advocates (Students for Justice in Palestine, UNC and Balance & Accuracy in Journalism), we hosted Stephen Zunes, Ph.D., who reviewed the drivers of US Foreign Policy towards Israel/Palestine. In April, we participated in interfaith programs with the Mennonite Church, and Palestinian American attorney and human rights advocated when Jonathan Kuttab spoke at three Triangle locations. Accompanying his presentation were speakers from the NC Chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace, who spoke of their advocacy efforts for equality of human rights. In mid-April, CPWJ sponsored Palestinian American scholar, Dr. Nahida Halaby Gordan, and artist Samia Halaby, who were forced to flee their Jafa (Jaffa) home in 1948! Their research and oral history accounts of the 1948 Nakba and aftermath for the Palestinians under Israeli Martial law revealed largely unknown reports to university
students in Raleigh. Matthew Hoh spoke to students at North Carolina State University about his experiences with Veterans for Peace, who in February marched in solidarity with Palestinians demonstrating nonviolently in their West Bank villages.
