Journalist Alison Weir is the founder of "If Americans Knew," an organization dedicated to providing Americans with information on topics of importance that are misreported or under-reported in the American media. She has been a journalist off and on for many years and spent a month traveling alone throughout Gaza and the West Bank as a freelance journalist, and now speaks throughout the country on the issue of Palestine. In her presentation, she describes her experiences in the Palestinian Occupied Territories, shows her slides of the area, gives a brief sketch of the history, and discusses American press coverage of the region. Weir has spoken extensively throughout the country at universities, colleges, Rotary Clubs, churches, as well as on Capitol Hill. A speech she gave in Washington D.C. at the Center for Policy Analysis was broadcast extensively on C-Span. Most frequently she speaks at universities and colleges, among these are Columbia, Stanford, Berkeley, Vassar, Purdue, Bard, NYU, Northwestern, the University of Wisconsin, the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and the Naval Postgraduate Institute.
