Youth in Palestine:  When abnormal becomes normal

Darin Hussein, from Palestine, will speak on her experiences working with youth in her home city of Ramallah. Her presentation will focus on her efforts to build job-training programs that can help young adults find appropriate and productive employment in a limited and stressful work environment.

Ms Hussein holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Birzeit University, West Bank and an MS in International Development from the University of Birmingham, UK. She has been nominated for the Michigan Professional Fellows Impact Award for her volunteer work creating career centers at universities in Ramallah. This year she is studying Public Policy as a Fulbright scholar in the Hubert Humphrey International Fellow Program at the University of Minnesota.

INSTEAD OF FIGHTING ANTISEMITISM, NEW SENATE BILL THREATENS FREE SPEECH

“We must be vigilant to fight against the intensified racism, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism that have been unleashed by Trump’s campaign and the threat of racist, anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant policies promised by his incoming administration. It is more essential than ever that our lawmakers anduc-regents-protest-oakland Jewish communal leaders insist that fighting anti-Semitism go hand in hand with fighting racism and Islamophobia, not reinforce them with misguided legislation designed to defend Israeli policies, not Jews.” said Rabbi Alissa Wise, deputy director of Jewish Voice for Peace
