Palestinian American Youth Civic Engagement

Omar Husseini bought a one-way ticket to Jerusalem, Palestine.  He never went back.  Instead of returning to California, he stayed in his father’s birthplace.  He advocates for Palestine through his work as a public relations representative in a university.  In response to the limited opportunities faced by Palestinians, Omar, age 28, explains to PAYCE Fellow Bri Dressel that he educates foreigners who come to visit so they can see the circumstances first hand. His weekend cultivation of the family farm is another form of activism with tangible results. Advocacy takes many forms within an individual’s sphere of influence.
