SAVE THE DATE: And Still We Rise: Transforming U.S. Policy Toward a Just Middle East

June 17 – 19, 2018 | Washington, D.C   Learn More


And Still We Rise
seeks to elevate the voices, contributions, and leadership of women peacemakers. While women make up the majority of students in Palestinian colleges and many Middle Eastern universities, and despite the growing recognition of the need for programs that empower and equip women, women’s voices are still too often underrepresented. This year’s Summit invites men and women to hear from speakers who are all women.

Over three days we will discuss current realities; learn about grassroots peace efforts happening in the Middle East; receive tools to effectively advocate on behalf of peace and security for Israelis, Palestinians, and all people in the Middle East; and meet with US Government representatives to advocate for peace in the Middle East.  

Registration coming soon! Stay informed by signing up for CMEP’s e-Bulletin and Event announcements.
