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 that critically examine the United States’ role in the world with a focus on issues of war, peace, and justice, with particular attention to the Middle East.
We have three big, live-event projects in Fall 2017– and are running a fun fundraiser on Generosity.com to undergird plans for our programing in 2018.
The first of our Fall projects was a book/author tour titled “Memories of Algeria’s Freedom Struggle”, featuring the legendary Algerian moudjahida Zohra Drif. You can read more about her tour here.
Another, that started in early October, is an ongoing speaker series that explores the ties between militarism and environmental harm. This speaker series will feature longtime environmental activist/journalist Gar Smith and many of his colleagues. Details of this project are here.
The third big live-event project, running in November and December, explores the relationship between the United States and the UN. It features veteran UN-watcher Ian Williams. You can learn more about this project, 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.
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.
… And please join us in building a more just and peaceable world!
