Workshop Highlight:
“Borders and Walls: From the U.S./Mexico Border to Palestine”

Presenters:
Ziad Abbas, program manager at the Middle East Children’s Alliance & Jody Sokolower, managing editor at Rethinking Schools

How can we use stories to help students see that Palestine connects to their own lives? How can we weave it into current curriculum? In this interactive workshop, highlighting the voices of Palestinian youth, we model lessons and share student-friendly resources that explore connections between the US/Mexico border and Palestine, including: police violence, impact on children and youth, checkpoints, prisons, US/Israeli ties, environment (e.g.,water), and resistance.

Look forward to weekly posts highlighting workshops and keynotes from the conference! Only 9 weeks away, July 9-12th at Laney College! Registration is now open on our official website: www.FMFP.org
