Palestinian American Youth Civic Engagement

PAYCE Fellow Renad Manasra profiles 20 year old Jordanian-based artist Lina Abojaradeh. Moving to Jordan from the United States was a significant change, but she found her voice through art. A Palestinian born in the United States, Lina has never visited Palestine.  She can’t. However, she uses her talent to represent her “homeland political issue.”  Lina found inspiration from other Palestinian artists and began to see art as a tool to advocate for causes important to her.  She seeks to make Palestinians more relatable and human to inspire action.  Learn more about Lina in episode 307 created by PAYCE Fellow Hannah Curran.
