Rachel Corrie (1979-2003), Evergreen student and human rights activist, was killed by an Israeli military-operated Caterpillar bulldozer in Gaza, as she tried to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian family’s home. Rachel’s solidarity actions and writing have resonated around the world in the play My Name is Rachel Corrie and the collection Let Me Stand Alone. Iris Dement honors her in a recent song as a “warrior of love.”
After the film We Are Them (Daniel Kopec) her parents, friends and faculty will discuss Rachel’s legacy and current events in Israel/Palestine. Students will share local history StoryMaps.
Paid parking is available at Evergreen. The campus is served by two Intercity Transit bus routes with service that is currently free: Route 41 (downtown via Division); Route 48 (downtown via Capital Mall)
