Madison Sabeel / FOSNA Conference November 7-8, 2014
VOICES FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE IN THE HOLY LAND

When: November 7 - 8, 2014
Registration begins at 10:00am Friday
The Conference begins at 12:30pm Friday and concludes at 5:00pm Saturday

Where: The Pyle Center, UW-Extension, 702 Langdon St, Madison Wisconsin 53706

The purpose of this two-day conference is to examine the role of the United States in Palestine/Israel and to listen to voices not often heard in the quest for peace and justice for all the people of the Holy Land.

It is sponsored by Friends of Sabeel-North America (FOSNA) and by Students for Justice in Palestine, Madison, WI.

The intention, design, and spirit of the conference is:
- to hear the stories and the political and theological perspectives of Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and secular writers and activists concerned with justice and peace in Palestine/Israel
- to educate, inspire,and make connections
- to galvanize advocacy for justice in Palestine-Israel

Conference participants will expand their understanding of what is happening now in Palestine/Israel and in the US through plenary sessions and workshops with writers and activists on the forefront of today's struggle for justice in the Holy Land.

Distinguished plenary speakers from the US and Israel/Palestine will address the current situation on the ground in Gaza, in the West Bank, and for Palestinians citizens of Israel, and will explore the impact of US foreign policy, the media, and religion on the region's struggle for justice.

Interactive workshops will engage participants about relevant historical realities, offer timely updates regarding facts on the ground, and provide ample time for lively discussions about creative responses. Workshops will also offer opportunities for involvement in specific areas of advocacy such as campus organizing, community education and humanitarian response, and strategies for BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) organizing.

Friday evening's events include a Palestinian dinner. Pre-registration before November 3 is required for dinner participation.

Friday evening's cultural program will present Palestinian poetry and dance.
