Peace and Justice Studies lecture to discuss reconciliation, sustainable peace between Palestine, Israel

| By Stephanie Weaver

Loyola University Maryland’s Bunting Program in Peace and Justice Studies will present a lecture and discussion with the Parents Circle-Families Forum on Tuesday, March 24 at 7 p.m. in the 4th Floor Program Room on the Evergreen campus. The event is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.

Parents Circle-Families Forum (PCFF) is a joint Palestinian and Israeli organization of families who have suffered the loss of a first degree relative, and who advocate for an end to the occupation and the conflict in Israel and Palestine. The group was founded in 1995, and works in two offices: the Palestinians in Beit Jala, Bethlehem, and the Israelis in Ramat Ef’al, Tel Aviv.

Two representatives from PCFF—Bassam Aramin, a Palestinian, and Robi Damelin, an Israeli—will give the lecture.

More information about this lecture and related upcoming events is available on the Bunting Peace and Justice Speaker Series website.
