We're dedicated to...
… to the website of Just World Educational, a feisty non-profit headquartered in Charlottesville, Virginia that provides educational resources and experiences to a broad public, on issues of war, peace, justice, and the Middle East.
Our big project in September 2017 is a book/author tour titled “Memories of Algeria’s Freedom Struggle”, featuring the legendary Algerian moudjahida Zohra Drif. You can read more about the tour here.
Our big campaign over Summer 2017 was an online informational campaign about the situation in Gaza, Palestine. It had the hashtags #Gaza51days and #GazaChat. You can read our a short report of how the campaign went, here.
Our big project for Spring 2017 was organizing a US-wide speaking tour for the Ramallah-based Palestinian cartoonist (and former political prisoner) Mohammad Sabaaneh, with the title “Life & Prison in Palestine: A Cartoonist’s Eye”. This tour took Mohammad’s unique creativity and power of witness to more than two dozen audiences in nine US states and the District of Columbia. More information about it can be found here.
This website itself is also one of our significant projects. It is– and will always be– a work in progress! Send us your feedback and ideas for how to make it more useful and effective! You can learn more about all of our projects at this tab on the website.
Join us in building a more just and peaceable world!
