About this Resource Center
This Resource Center presents the video records and all the other multi-media products of a webinar-based project that Just World Educational launched in late November 2020.
The first two webinars in this series, which each ran around 90 minutes, were:
- “Eating the Other: Food Sovereignty in Palestine and the US” a webinar that JWE presented on November 28, 2020, jointly with Grassroots International. This dialogue session featured a panel moderated by Grassroots International Executive Director Chung-Wha Hong , in which Maggie Schmitt and Laila El-Haddad were joined by U.S.-based food justice/ food sovereignty activists Brit Reed and Jonathan Wilson. Scroll on down to see the video of this session, the participants' bios, and other materials.
- "Living and Eating in Gaza" a webinar that JWE presented on December 12, in collaboration with the Museum of the Palestinian People. This session centered around the release of three short videos that JWE had commissioned from Gaza-based Ain Media, in which two Palestinian farmers and the manager of a tahina factory discussed their lives, their hopes, and the challenges they faced. In this session, moderated by Nora Barrows-Friedman of Electronic Intifada, E-Haddad and Schmitt discussed the issues raised bhy the videos from Gaza alongside Palestinian-American farming activist Mohammed Abujayyab. Bios, videos, and all other materials are below.
