The impressive local activism we have recently witnessed calling for an end to violence and a just peace in Israel and Palestine did not spring out of thin air. Rather, it built on relationships that evolved over a long period in Chicago and transnationally. This panel discussion explores how individuals from a diversity of backgrounds and ages—Arabs, Palestinians, Jews, African Americans, Christians, Muslims, secularists, older and younger activists— became involved in Palestine justice work. It features Professor Loren Lybarger (Ohio University) and Chicago-area activists with a diversity of overlapping affiliations. In a powerful demonstration of the solidarities and friendships that have formed among these individuals, the conversation will illuminate the impact of the succession of crises on these activists and their networks across the decades.
