CELEBRATING PALESTINIAN RESISTANCE
Asserting Our Narrative; 59 Years after the Nakbah

Palestinian and Arab community activists have come together to honor the 59th year of our continuous resistance and unbroken steadfastness in the struggle for the liberation of Palestine . Join us for an evening packed with cultural expressions of our resistance.

Program includes music, speakers, performances by Al-Juthoor (Palestinian Dabkeh Troop), and more. The night will also feature a photo exhibit documenting our displacement and ensuing struggle for freedom. This is an event not to be missed!

The Nakbah is the Arabic word for "catastrophe. " It marks the creation of the "State of Israel" in Palestine in 1948, where the Zionists expelled over 750,000 Palestinians, massacred thousands more, and destroyed hundreds of villages .Today, nearly 5 million Palestinians are struggling to return and many more are fighting for equality and justice. After nearly six decades of dispossession, we make sure that our struggle continues and the Nakbah will never be forgotten
