AUSTIN — One year after the Israeli war on Gaza, where are we now? What has happened in Gaza since? What has happened throughout Palestine? And how can we, as individuals and as a movement committed to justice, organize and respond?

Dr. Rania Masri, an Associate Director at the American University of Beirut, will address these questions and more at “Gaza One Year Later,” a fundraiser for Gaza being held at the Asian-American Resource Center, on July 3, 2015, beginning with a reception at 6:30 p.m.

Dr. Masri’s talk will be followed by a presentation of KinderUSA’s projects, a fundraiser, and an art auction. The evening will also feature a Middle Eastern dinner, live oud music, and a Palestinian bazaar. Proceeds benefit KinderUSA’s humanitarian relief for the children of Gaza and their families.

The event is sponsored by the Interfaith Community for Palestinian Rights. For more information, contact Haithem El-Zabri, haithem@kinderusa.org, 512-202-0996. For tickets, go here. Find the Facebook event page here.
