Learn what the Egyptian Revolution Means for Our Work

March 2nd, 2011

With the revolution in Egypt and uprisings throughout the Middle East, we know many of you are wondering what this means for our work. 

Join us for a special conference call, March 2nd at 9pm (EST) to discuss the changing politics in the Middle East, and how the revolution in Egypt affects our work on changing U.S. policy toward Palestine/Israel to support human rights, international law, and equality.  Guest speakers include:

Noura Erakat- Adjunct Professor of International Human Rights Law and the Middle East at Georgetown University. She is currently the Legal Advocacy Coordinator for the Badil Resource Center for Palestinian Refugee and Residency Rights.

Hany Khalil- Former Organizing Coordinator for United for Peace and Justice. He resides in Houston, TX and is active in efforts to bring Egyptian Americans together to support the democratic movement in Egypt.

Phyllis Bennis- Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies. She serves on the Steering Committee of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation. Her books include Understanding the Palestinian-Israel Conflict: A Primer.

The discussion will include the speakers' views on the Egyptian revolution, lessons learned, and how to use the new movements for freedom and democracy in the Middle East to advance those same rights for Palestinians. Followed by questions and answers.
