And community/activists responders.

While the US limits refugees from several Muslim-majority countries, where do Palestinian refugees stand in the world? How is their struggle connected to the immediate issues facing various immigrant and refugee populations, and how is it different? How can we support practical visions to realize the right of return for Palestinian refugees in the context of the struggle for human rights for all?

Lubnah Shomali from BADIL, the Palestinian refugee advocacy organization based in Bethlehem, will be raising awareness about the right of return, building connections between Badil and US advocacy groups/communities, and connecting issues of Palestinian right of return to other indigenous, racial justice, and refugee struggles in our communities. Lubnah is coming from Bethlehem, Palestine to speak at the JVP National Member Meeting coming up in Chicago at the end of the month and then will be touring.

Christine Neumann-Ortiz is the executive director of Voces de la Frontera. Voces is a membership-based community organization led by low-wage workers, immigrants and youth whose mission is to protect and expand civil rights and workers’ rights through leadership development, community organizing and empowerment.
