You just have to be human: Following the leadings of Spirit toward liberation

Evening Programs
Date and Time: 
Thursday, July 6, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:45pm

An evening to celebrate AFSC's Centennial

What does it mean to live under occupation? What does it mean to be cast in the role of occupier? How does Spirit guide resistance and liberation, awakening and struggle? Sa'ed Atshan and Sandra Tamari are Palestinian Quakers. Dalit Baum is an Israeli Jew. Together they will tell stories of living in the context of the Israeli occupation of Palestine, what moved them to begin resisting the occupation and militarism in that context and how the Spirit informs their struggle. They will draw connections between Palestine/Israel and other struggles such as Black Lives Matter and the need to push back against toxic masculinity. AFSC has worked in Palestine/Israel since 1948 and continues to work on the ground in the region and in the United States to shift policy there.
