    EDUCATION: This year we will hear from Huwaida Arraf, Palestinian American human rights activist, lawyer, and cofounder of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) and Cindy and Craig Corrie, founders of the Rachel Corrie Foundation and parents of Rachel.

We will provide copies of the bill and more information about how to contact your representative to support this bill.
