Engage in the Conversation! Together we will meet these two Combatants for Peace activists and hear their stories! They will share their personal stories of transformation and the work they are doing to end the occupation and bring peace, equality, and freedom to their homeland. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage with the activists. We highly recommend watching the film, Disturbing the Peace (shown as our March 2017 First Friday Film), prior to the event. The movie is available at https://reconsider.vhx.tv/…/disturbing-the…/purchase
We will open the Zoom event at around 7:15. Before the program, we will have announcements regarding upcoming events and actions for peace and social justice. We will enable video so that we can optionally see each other if you choose to enable your camera. The main program will begin at 7:30 with a presentation by Michael Feigenbaum. At 8pm we will be joined by Ahmed Helou.
