This multi-panelist event will provide an opportunity to learn about the history, contexts, forces, policies, and practices that have contributed to where we are today. A college is an apt educational setting for exploring the ethical strategies and stakes of being a global citizen, and that is the aim of this event.
Panelists will include a Luther alum, current students and faculty, and a New York-based Palestinian American ELCA pastor in a mix of Zoom and in-person participation. The program is formatted to invite each panelist to share their unique perspectives on the past, present, and future of Palestinian people; then the panelists will hold a roundtable dialogue among themselves to expand on ideas and insights that emerge; and we are planning on some time for attendee Q&A at the end.
This event is live and in-person. It is free and open to everyone. Folks are encouraged to attend in a civil & respectful approach to expanding critical thinking & analysis as part of an ongoing ethical process of taking positions and enacting support.
