An Attack on Palestinian Human Rights – How Should We Respond?

Tue January 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST

An attack on human rights – how should we respond? A conversation with Sahar Francis and Ubai Aboudi, directors of two of the Palestinian NGO’s that the Israeli government outlawed 

In late October, 2021, the Israeli minister of Defense falsely declared that six eminent and world respected Palestinian human rights and civil society organizations are terrorist groups. In this webinar the directors of two of those organizations will describe the work their organizations do and this attack on them. 

In these perilous times, we desperately need to be seeking and supporting the truth. Please listen to these courageous people and discern for yourself if reporting human rights and defending civil liberties should be outlawed and consider our suggestions for doing something about it.
