No Child Behind Bars tour in Seattle, Tuesday 6:30-8:30

January 24, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

No Child Behind Bars: 

Living Resistance from US to Palestine

Tuesday, January 24th

6:30-8:30 pm

University Congregational United Church of Christ

4515 16th Ave. N.E., Seattle

Ahed Tamimi, Amanda Weatherspoon and Nadya Tannous will discuss the connections between state-sponsored violence, criminalization and incarceration of youth in the United States and Palestine. Speakers will highlight the intersectional nature of injustice to children, including detention practices in the U.S., which disproportionally impact children and youth of color. The tour goal is to spread awareness and highlight congressional, economic and educational opportunities for coalitions to mobilize around the common goal to fully realize children’s human rights. This event offers an opportunity to engage with prophetic voices of our time — national tour speakers and those in our own community — powered by distinctive and united visions and sharing a platform to mobilize for systemic change.
