The Israel-Palestine conflict has reached yet another inflection point.
What's next for this protracted conflict? Is hope lost for a peaceful resolution? Is there an end in sight?
Yousef Bashir, a Gaza-born peace activist, will join WACA for a special KNOW NOW program, Inside Gaza, to shed light on these complex questions.
Yousef began his journey as a peacemaker after being shot in the back at 15 by an Israeli solder. He credits his father for teaching him to forgive and find reconciliation instead of turning to anger and revenge. Bashir holds a BA in International Affairs from Northeastern University and an MA in Coexistence and Conflict from Brandeis University. His experience includes serving as Congressional Intern, a Partnership for a Secure America Scoville Fellow, and partaking in the Seeds of Peace and Kids 4 Peace programs. His story has been featured on media outlets such as NPR and The Washington Post. Currently, Yousef works on Congressional Affairs for the Chief Representative of the PLO to the U.S. He will release a memoir, The Words of My Father, in late September of this year.
Join the May KNOW NOW call today, May 31, from 2:00-2:30 PM ET.
