Event Details

Hi Everyone,

We are rescheduling our event -- please stay tuned!

Sincerely,

Rebuilding Alliance Team

 

 

Speakers:

  • Laila El-Haddad - journalist, blogger, author
  • Donna Baranski-Walker - founder and executive director, Rebuilding Alliance

Join us to support the launch of Rebuilding Alliance’s Homes with Dignity --
A project to provide mortgage financing to build 20 beautiful eco-friendly homes in Al Aqaba

with loan guarantees to assure this
Palestinian village’s right to exist.


Laila El-Haddad‘s book, Gaza Mom: Palestine, Politics, Parenting and Everything in Between is a personal account of the Palestinian experience--through a journalistic lens, yes, but more importantly through a mother’s eyes. Her account spans between December 2004 and July 2010 and brings home the daily experience of life under occupation with its dehumanization and fear, but also with the love and happiness that happens despite everything.  Ms. El-Haddad is also a contributor to The Goldstone Report: The Legacy of the Landmark Investigation of the Gaza Conflict.

Donna Baranski-Walker, an MIT engineer turned peacemaker, was recently awarded a Medal of Gratitude for her past work in support of the Polish Solidarity Movement. She will be visiting Washington, DC with her legal team walking the halls of Congress to press for a simple intervention:  repave the road to a kindergarten in the peaceful West Bank Palestinian village of Al Aqaba. Opening that road is just the beginning: Donna will announce the launch of Rebuilding Alliance’s new project Homes with Dignity and invite the audience to support next steps.

Rebuilding Alliance

Rebuilding Alliance’s mission: to rebuild war-torn communities and make them safe. Our life-affirming vision: a just and enduring peace in Israel and Palestine founded upon equal value, security, and opportunity for all. This is village-centered rebuilding at its best, partnering with Palestinian and Israeli non-governmental organizations to rebuild Palestinian homes, schools, and playgrounds and pressing U.S. policy-makers to assure the safety of each project as we work to bring the Occupation to an end.  www.RebuildingAlliance.org
