Standing Together

The tragic events in Israel and Gaza since Oct. 7 have deeply affected all of us here in the United States and around the world. On Wednesday, March 20, the AFT is hosting a conversation about the situation in the Middle East with leaders of Standing Together, a grass-roots group of Jews and Palestinians who are fighting for peace, security, justice and self-determination.

AFT President Randi Weingarten and civil rights leader Eric Ward of the organization Race Forward will be joined by Sally Abed and Alon-Lee Green, co-chairs of Standing Together, Amy Spitalnick from the Jewish Council for Public Affairs and Daily Beast columnist Wajahat Ali.

The AFT is committed to advancing democracy, peace, security and freedom; to having the imagination to find a better way out of this horrible catastrophe in Gaza, Israel and the West Bank; and to fostering conversations with civil society.

Please join us on Wednesday, March 20, 2024, from 4:00-5:30 pm, at the Washington AFT office to hear from members of our community who are mobilizing for an immediate cease-fire and a sustainable pathway to peace in the region.
