Sabra Falling: Call for Palestinian Storytelling
SEPTEMBER 23 & OCTOBER 1
To mark the 35 years since the massacres at Sabra and Shatila and the 50 years since the Naksa (the 1967 War), and in honor of nearly 70 years of occupation of Palestine, we welcome you to join us for two opportunities for story sharing, Permission to Narrate: Palestinian Stories of Occupation & Displacement.

We invite members of the Palestinian community to share their personal and family stories of Sabra and Shatila, the Naksa, and any stories of the occupation. We welcome members of the broader community to attend as allies, to help us create a respectful space of respect and solidarity, and to be present to listen and learn.
