A talk by Cindy and Craig Corrie
Gaza and US Policy Flyer (741 downloads)

What is the current situation in Gaza and the U.S. responsibility in it? How can we, as U.S. citizens, take a constructive role in creating a foreign policy in line with universal human rights?

Rachel Corrie was crushed to death by an Israeli military bulldozer while protecting the home of a Palestinian family. Her parents, Cindy and Craig Corrie, founded the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice to continue the work their daughter began. They have visited Gaza four times, twice in 2009, and work to support human rights in the Middle East. Their deep personal connections with Gaza provide the human context for looking at what the U.S. has done, and at what we should expect and demand of our policy-makers.
