Power Point  Presentation summary:
Local community organizer, Elisabeth Geschiere invites you to learn with her in an interactive presentation about life in the occupied West Bank of Palestine. Elisabeth just spent two months of the Spring volunteering with Israeli and Palestinian activists working within the non-violent resistance movement. The presentation was co-created by Beth, another Minneapolitan who just completed a year of volunteering with the Lutheran church and school and a Palestinian human rights campaign in the city of Ramallah, and draws from both of their experiences. The audience can expect a time of collectively exploring the history, narratives, and struggles facing the people of Palestine and Israel.
