“We have one goal — to save lives and evacuate people. And to send a message to the world: Without weapons, we can do anything.” The young woman who spoke these words — Razan al-Najjar — was shot dead by Israeli snipers. A volunteer with our partner group, the Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS), Razan was rushing to provide medical care to an injured protester when she was killed. We honor her and recommit to this work for peace and justice in Palestine.
Yifat Susskind, MADRE Executive Director, appeared on 112BK with Ashley Ford to address global women's rights, the rise of the right and how progressive activists can learn from each other to build stronger movements.
