Our panel discussion will consist of professors, activists, journalists and authors who will provide a historical context for the modern Israel-Palestine conflict and offer their thoughts and opinions on a two-state solution. We expect over 100 audiences that includes cultural, social, and political-minded individuals, in addition to the field activists and students around New York City.
This event mission is to stimulate the interest of young people in government affairs and to promote the involvement of young people in the political process. In the past, the committee has worked on policy papers and has been represented at numerous international discussion forums. We hope to generate awareness of the conflict by having experts share their opinions and engage in a healthy debate regarding possible solutions.
Join us for a stimulating intellectual discussion!
