Nonviolence in action in the Palestinian territories: An Evening with Ali Abu Awwad
On Tuesday, Jan, 14, 2020, The Roth Family JCC will host Ali Abu Awwad from 7:30 p.m. – 9 p.m.
In 2016, Ali Abu Awwad and Taghyeer Movement co-founders gathered more than 3000 Palestinians in Jericho to share a dream and a vision. "Together, we can build a grassroots movement through nonviolence in action to better Palestinian lives and forge a path to freedom."
Since then, village by village, embattled community by embattled community, Taghyeer has been equipping hundreds of emerging Palestinian leaders and activists to build trust and capacity for independent self-development projects in and with their communities. Through asserting nonviolent identity, Taghyeer is combatting despair, fragmentation, and the denial of rights.
By the summer of 2019, Taghyeer leadership and its local coordinators were coalescing around two flagship efforts and a major strategic planning exercise to reach deeply into Palestinian society.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Keith Dvorchik at 407-645-5933. To RSVP go to orlandojcc.org/calendar/nonviolence-in-action
ACT for America hosts Laura Cardoza-Moore
On Jan. 22, 2020, 6:30 p.m., ACT for America will host Laura Cardoza-Moore at its new location, The Roth Family JCC, Senior Center Meeting Room, 851 Maitland Ave.
This meeting is a family-friendly event, so everyone is welcome. Students are encouraged to attend because the issues of the day that will impact students directly in the next 5-10 years will be discussed.
Topics to be discussed include: Marxist disinformation taught to our children in Florida classrooms across the state; the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement being taught to our children and promoted in the halls of Congress and Senate; the escalating violence by the Shia Muslims terrorist group, Hezbollah and other proxies of Iran, in Iraq, Syria, and here in the United States. These same Shia Muslim terrorists attacked our embassy in Iraq on Dec. 30, 2019.
This even is free and open to the public.
