The current crisis has forced each of us to make fundamental changes to our daily routines and, for many of us, the Palestine solidarity work we do is a significant part of our lives. We have compiled a list of educational resources and campaigns that are active during this trying time that we hope will help you remain involved in the global movement for Palestinian rights as we navigate this new terrain. Please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] if you need any additional information about the resources and campaigns you see here.
