Join us on Sunday, July 9 at 12pm EST in partnership with our friends at the Abraham Initiatives, as we explore how Palestinian citizens of Israel are responding to the current judicial overhaul protests and the role they play in them.
We'll be joined by:
Dr. Thabet Abu Rass, The Abraham Initiatives co-CEO -- Dr. Abu Rass has strategic partnerships with key public and political leaders in Arab society, and has advocated for investment in Palestinian communities in Israel at the highest levels of government. Since the judicial overhaul protests began, he has spoken at demonstrations across the country and spearheaded the Abraham Initiatives media campaign which encourages Palestinian citizens of Israel to join the protests.
Amir Badran, Tel Aviv-Jaffa City Councillor -- Amir is one of only two Palestinian members of the Tel Aviv-Jaffa City Council and has significant legal and political experience advocating for Palestinian citizens of Israel. He has served as a keynote speaker at the judicial overhaul protests in Tel Aviv, where he spoke about the importance of Israeli democracy for its Palestinian citizens.
Orni Petruschka, leading member of protest coordination -- Orni is an activist and entrepreneur. Not only does he work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that the protests run smoothly, but he is among the Jewish-Israeli organizers who have been promoting the participation of Palestinian citizens of Israel in the protests and collaborating with Palestinian leaders.
