Sat. Oct 20 / Hope in Dark Times: Reflections on 30 Years in the Women’s Peace Movement

Hope in Dark Times: Reflections on 30 Years in the Women’s Peace Movement
Saturday October 20th 2018 at 5 p.m.
Women in Black – Union Square
Invites you to an afternoon of reflections on  activism for justice in Israel/Palestine

Come and meet Dalia Sachs and Hannah Safran, long time feminist/lesbian activists in Women In Black, Haifa,  and the women’s peace movement,
who will give a talk and lead a discussion on:
Reflections on 30 Years in the Women’s Peace Movement.

Hannah and Dalia will share their experiences and reflect on the current situation in Israel/Palestine. After 30 years of participating in women’s peace movements their focus has had to shift many times on different issues as the political  reality has deteriorated. In the last three years Hannah began to go to the Jordan Valley to support Palestinian communities while Dalia has been a part of a campaign to help women from Gaza with breast cancer get through Israel for treatment in East Jerusalem.
The meeting will take place in mid-town at a wheelchair-accessible location. Please RSVP to  sherrygorelick@rcn.com or to hsafran10@hotmail.com and we will send you the address.
Attendance is free. Donations to the Palestinian community in the Jordan Valley (area C under Israeli military control) would be appreciated. (Information on how to support them will be discussed at the meeting.)
