Is Palestine A Climate Justice Issue?
Saturday, May 23, 10 AM–1 PM
For climate justice activists, Palestine can seem like a separate struggle – one that is far away, hard to understand, and disconnected from the urgent demands of climate justice. But learning about the impact of Israeli occupation on Palestine and how climate justice is woven into Palestine resistance is critical to developing a global and principled approach to climate justice.You’ll leave this interactive workshop with new knowledge, new ideas, and lots of resources for moving forward. Please join us! We will be sending a link to our Zoom the week of the webinar.
Palestine, Zionism, and Racial Justice: An Introduction
Tuesday, May 26, 5 PM-7 PM
As people in the US, our government is directly responsible for providing Israel with the material resources and political cover it uses to maintain and expand its brutal settler colonial project in Palestine. Recognizing that all forms of oppression are interconnected and can’t be fought in isolation, we offer this webinar to strengthen your understanding of the struggle for Palestinian liberation, its intersections with domestic racial justice struggles, and to offer lessons for white organizers working in solidarity.
