March 23 (1:00 - 9:00) and March 24 (9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.): Scholars and activists from Palestine, Israel and the U.S. explore ways to achieve justice and peace in Israel/Palestine. Discussions and workshops cover existing barriers - physical, economic, legal, ideological - and how to overcome them. The event will give particular focus to Arab Spring, silencing dialog in Christian and Jewish communities, and Palestinian ties with Silicon Valley through high tech.

Speakers include Naim Ateek, founder of Sabeel, an organization dedicated to non-violent resistance to the occupation. Khalil Barhoum, Stanford professor, Hatem Bazian, Berkeley professor, many others.

$90 for both days, $55 for one day. Fees include dinner Friday evening from DishDash, lunch on Saturday, music from George Lammam, poetry from hip hop artist Remi Kanzani (http://poeticinjustice.net/), poet Lorene Zouzounis, and, of course, access to renowned experts. Parking included.
