The Abrahamic Initiative on the Middle East (AIME) at UNC Chapel Hill invites you to a unique forum on Sunday, October 26th. The forum will explore the connections among Jewish,  Palestinian, African-American, Latino, and Native American liberation struggles. While distinct, these struggles share many similar dynamics.

Our goal this year is to explore the connections among Jewish, Palestinian, African-American, Latino, and Native American liberation struggles. While distinct, these struggles share many similar dynamics, including issues of dispossession, systemic threat to identity and culture, misinformation, propaganda, and disfiguring narratives by the dominant power and culture, exploitation, incarceration, dislocation and population transfers, dehumanization and marginalization.  The forum will also explore the historic role of BDS movements both in the U.S. and around the world.
