Kairos Puget Sound Coalition Planning Conference: No Way to Treat a Child

September 17, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Planning conference–  an essential annual event to focus the Coalition’s thinking and effort, currently centered around the “No Way To Treat A Child” national campaign. The conference is being organized by the Kairos Puget Sound Coalition, a congregationally-based network working for justice and peace in Palestine/Israel and is affiliated with Christian churches and organizations located in the greater Seattle area.  These organizations are responding to the plea of Palestinian Christians to end their oppression.

In 2009, Palestinian Christians wrote the document Kairos Palestine: “A Moment of Truth”, in faithful resistance to the oppression and dispossession of their people. It expresses faith, hope and love from the heart of Palestinian suffering.

Conference Focus:

  • To awaken the church community and civil society to the gross violation of the human rights of incarcerated Palestinian children in Israeli prisons.
  • To encourage advocacy by participants on behalf of these children, and
  • To provide resources supporting advocacy efforts.
Registration begins at 1:00 pm. The program commences at 1:30 and includes speakers, Jennifer Bing with the American Friends Service Committee and Brad Parker, staff attorney with the Defense for Children International-Palestine, a dynamic panel with activists: John McKay, lawyer, Dr. Alice Rothchild, physician and writer, and Amal Muammar, psychologist in family practice.
The conference concludes with a photo exhibit and reception from 4:45 to 6:00.
All are welcome and no one is turned away for lack of funds.

Tickets available through Brown Paper Tickets
