Madison: Madison-Rafah Sister City Project
The Madison-Rafah Sister City Project was started in 2003 by a group of concerned citizens in Madison, Wisconsin and Rafah, Palestine. The goals of the project are to build wider public awareness of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and lasting person-to-person relationships benefiting both cities.
Letters were sent to the WISCONSIN STATE JOURNAL several days before 3/16 to commemorate Rachel Corrie - focusing on her life and death, remembering her passing and remembering exactly for what she was fighting. No articles appeared in the newspaper, but important efforts at drawing attention to the anniversary were made by people in the community.
