RPFAA Follow-Up: How Do We Break Through the Silence and Act for Peace and Justice in the Israel/Palestine Crisis?

In February, the RPFAA sponsored “How Do We Break Through The Silence& Act for Peace & Justice: Israel/Palestine Crisis?” led by Rotary Peace Fellows Katherine Hughes-Fraitekh and Kiran Singh Sirah. As a follow-up, we want to introduce you to Atta Khaled.

Atta is a key member of the Palestinian Youth Advisory Panel (YAP) with whom Katherine has been working with for the last two years. He and his immediate family escaped to Egypt in November after surviving almost two months in Gaza.

Atta arrived in the US a couple of months ago and is being hosted by a Rotary Club in Houston where he is doing a fellowship. He has been busy meeting with different Rotary audiences. In April, Atta spoke on a panel at the United Nation’s Global Youth Conference in New York.

The RPFAA is excited to announce that Atta will join us virtually on Thursday, May 9th to share his work on the Palestinian Youth Advisory Panel, his survival and escape to Egypt, and his thoughts on the future for the region. This event is free and open to everyone.
