In the fall of 2014, NSJP and R2E hosted the first ever Right to Education tour through the US, themed "Building Unity, Breaking Walls." Ten students from Birzeit University spent two weeks in the United States, visiting campuses across the country. The tour was such a success, we're doing it again in April 2016!
The aims of the tour are:
1) to create linkages between the student movement in the US and Palestine;
2) to build long-term, institutional relationships between our universities; and
3) to exchange information between Palestinians and US social movements fighting related issues of racism, colonialism, and attacks on education (e.g. indigenous, migrant and Black struggles).
Calling SJPs around the country! Are you interested and able to host some awesome Palestinian students this spring? Fill out our interest form as soon as possible. Click here to find out more about the tour.
