The Cambridge Bethlehem People to People Project invites you to an evening with Sa'ed Atshan Activist, Founding Director - The Theater Offensive, a grassroots movement and voice for the LGBTQ community

Welcome from Abe Rybeck - Ass't Professor - Peace & Conflict Studies - Swarthmore College raising awareness, fighting bigotry and hate through the LGBTQ Palestinian human rights activist performing arts.

"Activism isn’t just about focusing on specific causes; all forms of oppression, from racism and colonialism to homophobia and religious intolerance, intersect and cannot be disaggregated from each other" -Sa'ed Atshan

"Think about who we are: women, trans folks, people of color, people who want to drink clean water. That’s all of us. We are already under attack. ..We’re mobilizing as part of the resistance to this. I think culture plays a vital role in resistance. Culture is part of the problem that created the situation that we’re in, and it’s part of the solution." - Abe Rybeck

All are welcome for a coffeehouse environment of listening and talking. Light refreshments served.

Please RSVP due to limited space.
