About this event
Join us for this conversation with Nooran Alhamdan about Palestinian refugee rights and the centrality of the Nakba to the Palestinian cause. Nooran will discuss BDS as a tool for advocacy and change, and paint a vision for a binational future for Israel-Palestine. She will talk about her experiences and research on the Palestinian situation, and make the case for why progressives should aggressively engage in US-Israeli policy to shape a more peaceful future for the Palestinian and Israeli peoples, as well as our own future.
Nooran Alhamdan is an MA candidate of Arab Studies at Georgetown University. She graduated from the University of New Hampshire with degrees in economics, political science and a minor in Middle Eastern studies. She is a former graduate research fellow at the Middle East Institute’s Program on Palestine and Palestinian-Israeli Affairs, a former intern at Arab American Institute and the United Nations Population Fund and a 2019 Harry S. Truman Scholar. Nooran has been published by +972 Magazine, the Washington Post, the Independent and others. She is passionate about Palestinian liberation, decolonization and radical futurism.
