Yousef Aljamal and Miko Peled will be livestreaming from Washington DC's Palestine Center at 1 pm today. Yousef's great activities in DC so far.  Many more cities to come!
Dear friend-

I'm thrilled to tell you that Yousef Aljamal and Miko Peled will be livestreaming from Washington DC's Palestine Center at 1 pm ET today-- also, that Yousef had an array of wonderful, informative meetings on Capitol Hill last week, and a very rich public event alongside Miko Peled, at Rev. Graylan Hagler's Plymouth UCC church in DC, yesterday.

Above, you can see a photo taken after Yousef's in-depth conversation with Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), last Wednesday. We were extremely appreciative of Rep Pressley, along with Reps. Betty McCollum (D-MN), Hank Johnson (D-GA), and Andre Carson (D-IN), all of whom took time from their hectic Congressional schedules to sit down and listen to Yousef's important witness about life in Gaza and the terrible situation of Palestinian children in Israel's draconian, military-run detention system.

See some photos from those encounters at the photo album we're building of Yousef's tour as it progresses, on our Facebook page!

Yousef also had the chance to speak at some length with staffers in an additional 17 congressional offices!

Here are a couple of photos from the event that Yousef and Miko spoke at yesterday, at Plymouth UCC church:
(You can find lots more photos at our Facebook photo album!)

This afternoon, after the Palestine Center livestream, Yousef will be heading to an evening event in Richmond VA (7 pm at the Pace Center, 700 W. Franklin St.) Then, he'll be speaking in the following cities:
  • Williamsburg, VA
  • Decatur, GA
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Milwaukee, WI
  • Madison, WI
  • Portland, OR
  • Honolulu, HI
In all his speaking events so far-- and in his meetings on Capitol Hill-- Yousef provided a lot more information on the child-detention issue by sharing the stirring anthology of testimonies from young survivors of Israel's military-run detention system, Dreaming of Freedom: Palestinian Children Speak, that he translated into English.

This timely book is now available wherever fine books are sold, for $9.99.

Friends, as you must know, all our programs take resources to accomplish well-- especially a speaking tour of the scope of this one. If you can make a donation to help support Yousef's tour and our other programs, that would as always be very much appreciated! You can use this link to do so:
