Palestinian Liberation is a Racial Justice Issue

May 20, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Webinar banner

Join SURJ and friends to learn more about what’s going on in Israel and Palestine right now, how we got here, and how Palestinian liberation is a racial justice issue that ties into our broader vision for collective liberation. Featuring leaders from Arab Resource Organizing Center, Friends of Sabeel North America, Catalyst Project, and SURJ-Faith.

SURJ supports Palestinian liberation. And as a majority-white racial justice organization, we know that many of our beliefs about Palestine have been shaped by racist and pro-United States propaganda in our media, telling us that Palestinians are terrorists or that Israel is defending democracy against the terrorism of the Middle East or even that supporting Palestine means you’re anti-Semitic.

Nothing could be further from the truth, but like in many other parts of our work, we need to unlearn these teachings in order to be strategic and effective in the ways we take action together.

Our struggles across the world are connected. Those who benefit from the status quo want to keep our movements fractured and disjointed. Whether we’re fighting against police violence, deportations, or pipelines here in the US, or against the violent seizure of Palestinian homes and land, we can find power and connection in our collective struggle.
