Discover How Resistance Creates Social Change at “Palestine: History Repeating Itself”

September 15, 2021

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Northridge — The University Student Union (USU) in collaboration with the Loker Student Union of CSU Dominguez Hills invites the CSUN community to participate in a compelling and crucial panel discussion on social justice and the history of solidarity at Palestine: History Repeating Itself. On Thursday, Sept. 23, from 2:00-3:30 p.m., join us via Zoom as we hear from a panel of knowledgeable activists and scholars on how you can make a difference through your own commitment to both national and global solidarity and elevate the visibility of social justice movements with your involvement. 

“With the many diverse communities we have at CSUN, it is critical that we show support to our fellow Matadors when nation-state violence affects their community,” said Ayan Jama, Diversity Initiatives Coordinator. “With this program, we stress the importance of educating yourself on these important topics that are still prevalent today.” 

Palestine: History Repeating Itself is intended to educate the CSUN community on why global solidarity continues to be a powerful tool for change. With countless numbers of injustices and persistent nation-state violence against marginalized communities continuing to happen every day, it’s imperative you and other Matadors be informed on how these issues created many powerful movements, including the recent Free Palestine. 

You will also learn about the current work being done to sustain global solidarity for Palestine. In addition, participants will be given the opportunity to ask the panelists questions during the Q&A session. Be sure to register on the USU calendar page and take the initiative of educating yourself on these essential topics.

Join us for Palestine: History Repeating Itself featuring South African activist and poet, Natalia Molebasti, Associate Professor and Interim Chair in Comparative Ethic Studies at UC Berkeley Dr. Keith Feldman, and former Director and Host of KCSB at UC Santa Barbara Elizabeth Robinson, to engage in these important conversations with your fellow Matadors.
