Pilgrimage to Peace
Israeli Military Detention: No Way to Treat a Child
With Farah Bayadasi and Jennifer Bing
Hosted by Friends of Sabeel-Colorado. Two women peacebuilders will help us better understand the realities affecting both Israelis and Palestinians and how people of faith in the United States can play a positive role in pursuing peace by hosting dialogues about disagreements and becoming peacemakers and reconcilers in the midst of conflict. Learn how global-minded people of faith, who are committed to compassion and justice, can bring hope to broken communities throughout the world—especially in Palestine and Israel.
Farah Bayadasi is a Palestinian lawyer for Defense for Children International working as an advocate specializing in children’s arrest cases in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Farah grew up Baqa Elgharbeya in Haifa city and is currently based in Jerusalem. In 2014, she worked as an advocate/lawyer for Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, where she tackled cases of political arrests of Palestinians (minors/adults) by Israeli forces, administrative detentions, hunger strikes of Palestinian prisoners, among others, in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.
Jennifer Bing directs the Palestine-Israel program for the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) in Chicago. Jennifer began her advocacy for Palestinian children after working as a teacher in a Quaker school in Ramallah during the first Palestinian uprising (1986-1989). During those years she also worked as a field worker and researcher for Swedish
