(February 24 - March 6) Senior Young Leader Speaking Tour

Three incredible alumnae, a Palestinian from the West Bank, a Palestinian living in Israel, and a Jewish Israeli, will share their personal stories of growing up in conflict and violence and their journeys to becoming peacemakers.

This tour offers audiences in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and New York the extraordinary opportunity to hear firsthand what’s happening in the region right now. With reports of daily violence and a deepening division, it is more important than ever to hear the messages of hope and strength from these accomplished young women. We hope the people we reach at these events walk away informed, inspired, and empowered to be part of the change for justice, peace, and equality for all.
