Preparing for 2020 - Advocating for Palestinian Rights

Sharpen your skills and network with other organizers as we prepare to engage in 2020 election year conversations about justice and equality in Israel and Palestine.

Join us in Washington, DC!


We are looking forward to a discussion about Gaza and advocacy efforts during the upcoming gathering in Washington, DC “Preparing for 2020: Advocating for Rights, Justice & Freedom” planned for Saturday, September 7 and Sunday, September 8.


On Saturday afternoon, AFSC's Gaza Unlocked contributor Jehad Abusalim will facilitate a conversation with four participants who have worked on Gaza advocacy from different backgrounds – as staff with policy organizations, national church bodies, a media non-profit organization, and as humanitarian workers in Gaza.


The conversation will address successes engaging the U.S. public about Gaza and strategies to overcome the various challenges faced at the levels of discourse, mainstream media, and in the broader political and policy contexts.


Other topics that will be addressed during the weekend are advocacy for Palestinian children’s rights, protecting our rights to boycott and use of divestment strategies, and making connections across movements to build solidarity and power.
