The Unitarian Universalist Peace and Justice Committee is hosting an event by The Rebuilding Alliance and Right To Movement. Participants from the Palestine Marathon will speak on the experience of competing in this unique event. The name of the last organization refers to Article 13 of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to freedom of movement."

The ten runners are young professionals and two students, ages 19-25 years old, and will also have run in the San Francisco Marathon on July 27th. They are part of Right to Movement, a non-profit, non-religious, non-political organization of over 300 runners based in Bethlehem that organizes the annual Palestine Marathon.

Admission is free. The organizers will ask for donations to help cover the cost of travel to the Bay Area to participate in the SF Marathon.

§Palestine Marathon
by Brad Gaffney Sunday Jul 27th, 2014 1:04 AM

In spite of quadrupling number of participants in the second Palestine Marathon, we victoriously kept the high number of female runners. 35% in 2014 against 37% in 2013. We accredit this to the powerful and brave female trailblazers in the Right to Movement community in Palestine and around the world, who inspire other women to follow their lead and compete in sporting events on equal terms with men. You run to tell a different story - not only of Palestine - but of women's right to move. - See more at: http://palestinemarathon.com/#sthash.Wg4YJqcF.dpuf
