A Conversation with Issa Amro

October 1, 2017 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

The Global Missions Committee is thrilled to welcome Issa Amro to the church on Sunday. He is an internationally recognized human rights defender in Hebron, Palestine. Nicknamed “the Palestinian Ghandi,” Amro is the founder and coordinator of Youth Against Settlements (YAS) – an organization working to strengthen the Hebron community’s steadfastness against the expansion of illegal settlements and document Israeli human right violations. In 2009, Amro won the One World media award for his involvement in B’Tselem’s “Shooting Back” campaign (using cameras to document abuses in Hebron). In 2010, Amro was named by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights human rights defender of the year in Palestine. In 2013, the European Union named Amro a Human Rights Defender.
