With the Trump administration’s full-blown war on immigrants and communities of color, what can solidarity look like between Asian Pacific Islanders and Palestinians? 
Join Occupation Free DC for a conversation about the war on terror, the war on immigrants, and Asian Pacific Islander-Palestine solidarity. 

The building is handicapped accessible, with an elevator. There are gender-neutral bathrooms available. Please refrain from wearing scents (perfumes/scented chemicals). Lastly, if you message Jewish Voice for Peace - DC Metro with accessibility requests, we will do our best to accommodate. Thank you!

Featuring:
Deepa Iyer - a South Asian American activist, writer, and lawyer. Iyer’s areas of expertise include the post 9/11 America experiences of South Asian, Muslim, Arab and Sikh immigrants, national security and immigration policies, and racial equity and solidarity practices.
