Want to speak about your experiences in Palestine?

For those of you from the U.S., here is an opportunity to share your story with others. If you're not from the U.S., do you know of a similar initiative in your country? Are you interested in contacting your regional Friends of Sabeel office to see if you could start a Speaker's Bureau to organize presentations and speakers on the situation for Palestinians, the Palestinian-Christian community, and prospects for a just peace in Palestine and Israel?

Let us know by commenting on this blog post or by emailing us at!

From Friends of Sabeel North America:

Dear Friends: Have you ever wanted to speak about your experiences in Palestine? You will be provided the chance to speak through a new project sponsored by the American Association for Palestinian Equal Rights Foundation (AAPER Foundation). AAPER Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to inform the American public about the situation in Palestine, particularly the human and national rights of the Palestinian people. Their website can be found at

As part of its educational work and its Five for Palestine Campaign (, the AAPER Foundation is developing a list of speakers from across the United States to speak about and educate their fellow citizens in their respective states and communities on the situation in Palestine. And because we constantly hear that participants in Sabeel witness trips to Palestine would like opportunities to speak to audiences about what they have seen and learned, we want to include them on the speakers list.

If you are interested, the AAPER Foundation can provide you with well-researched, nicely-designed and very professional informational materials, a compelling PowerPoint presentation, training workshops and speaking opportunities in your area.
If you would be interested in participating in this project, please send an email to: or call (202) 683-8438.
