Sunday in DC!
Join us 10am
Join us for our "Global Community Award Celebration" recognizing the life and work of acclaimed Palestinian Resistance Fighter and journalist, Janna Tamimi (along with author, activist and speaker Miko Peled). Through #JannaTamimi ‘s groundbreaking videography and storytelling, this young journalist has captured the struggle for Palestinian Liberation by documenting numerous marches and demonstrations that highlight the power of love and resistance against oppression.
Janna comes from a long tradition of freedom fighters in the village of Nabi Saleh. Her aunt and uncle, Nariman and Bassem Tamimi, have long led grassroots protests. Her cousin, #AhedTamimi , became famous last year for the "slap heard around the world" when she bravely stood up to Israeli Defense Forces soldiers outside her family home. The two young women have come to symbolize the youngest generation's struggle against Israeli settler colonialism and military occupation: a struggle informed by an intersectional analysis of global oppression.
Celebration at 10am at Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ (5301 North Capitol Street NE) on Sunday, July 21

This is heartbreaking! The Justice Department officially decided this morning that they will not charge the police officer who choked #EricGarner to death in an illegal chokehold in 2014. Five years later and still no justice. Sending Love and Light to Eric Garner's family and friends on what must be a painful and traumatic day. My heart breaks for Eric and his loved ones. This is a grave injustice. Art by @AFranks3. RP via @ImaginexJustice.
