JOIN US TO RADICALLY IMAGINE THE FUTURE OF PALESTINE
Panel: Reclaiming our imagination for paths to social change: a conversation with other movements
This panel is a conversation amongst organizers who have helped to build social and political movements within their own constituencies, with the goal of understanding the experiences of other movements and identifying potential lessons for the Palestinian context.
The panel will consider the following questions: What is the radical imagination in each of their contexts? How did/are they organiz(ing) towards that vision? How do we mobilize large groups of people/various sectors in society towards the same goal? What lessons are they learning/can they share?
