Philadelphia Sabeel / FOSNA Conference March 28-29, 2014
THE ROLE OF THE US IN ISRAEL-PALESTINE: Current Realities & Creative Responses
MARCH 28-29, 2014
A two-day conference sponsored by Friends of Sabeel-North America (FOSNA) will be hosted by the American Friends Service Committee and held at Friends Center, Philadelphia, to examine the role of the United States in Israel-Palestine.
The intention, design, and spirit of the FOSNA Conference is to galvanize advocacy for justice in Israel-Palestine.
Through plenary sessions and workshops, this groundbreaking conference will spotlight what is happening in the US with regard to Israel-Palestine. Distinguished plenary speakers will address current realities such as US foreign policy, the media, political discourse, and religion.
Interactive workshops will engage participants about relevant historical realities, offer timely updates regarding facts on the ground, as well as provide ample time for lively discussions about creative responses - opportunities for involvement in specific areas of advocacy such as campus organizing, US military aid, educating through Steadfast Hope and Kairos USA, "Difficult" Conversations, Palestine as a civil rights struggle, and BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions).
Conference participants can expect to leave with a wealth of specific avenues for action.
