Salena Tramel, Grassroots International Program Coordinator for the Middle East and Haiti, recently visited with all of Grassroots’ partners in the occupied Palestinian territories and Israel. This was not her first time in the region, having lived and worked in the West Bank just two years ago. Her previous experience in the region provides a vantage point from which to consider the current political, economic and social reality in the region.
Her article, “Windows Into Gaza” appeared today on Common Dreams, offering both personal stories and insights from visits with Palestinians this March, just weeks after the Israeli attacks stopped. We look forward to more stories in the coming weeks!
