Wednesday, December 6, 7-8:30pm, Columbus Metropolitan Library [Rm. 1-A], 96 S. Grant Ave.

This month’s program: “Legislative Advocacy,” by Kareem El-Hosseiny. Kareem El-Hosseiny is the Government Relations Coordinator of American Muslims for Palestine. He moved to the Washington, D.C. area from Columbus, Ohio, where he had grown up and had graduated from The Ohio State University with a B.A. in Political Science and International Relations. He has been an activist for human rights since childhood, volunteering and organizing locally within his community. In 2009, one year after the Gaza Massacre, Mr. El-Hosseiny had the honor of participating in the Viva Palestina medical aid convoy to Gaza with British M.P. George Galloway. The images that he had witnessed and the people who he had met had forged a deep love within him and had solidified his dedication to the Palestinian cause.

Jewish Voice for Peace members are inspired by Jewish tradition to work together for peace, social justice, equality, human rights, respect for international law, and a U.S. foreign policy based on these ideals.

Please note that this is a new meeting location; parking will be available in the library’s parking garage.
