Help Rev. Joi Orr travel to Palestine/Israel as a part of the Interfaith Peace-Builder’s 2012 African Heritage Delegation.
Interfaith Peace-Builders sends delegations to Israel/Palestine so that residents of North American can see the conflict with their own eyes. Participants have the opportunity to learn directly from Israeli and Palestinian nonviolent peace/human-rights activists, to spend time in Palestinian and Israeli homes, and to experience the situation of Palestinians living under military occupation. The delegations focus on seeing, listening to, and recording the experiences and perspectives of a wide range of Palestinians and Israelis. Click here to learn more about our Delegation Program.
Joi is a graduate of the University of Maryland College Park and Howard University School of Divinity where she served as the Student Government Association President and Co-Chair/Founder of Seminarians for Justice. Currently, she is the Director of Organizing with Faith Leaders for Community Change, a faith-based nonprofit dedicated to helping kids in low performing schools reach academic success.
My on-the-ground experience will enrich my understanding of the conflict as I meet courageous Israelis and Palestinians working for peace and justice. – Rev. Joi Orr
