The Carla Henebry-Branscombe Memorial Lecture Series will present programs about Palestine during Adult Forum throughout November.
November 19: Children Under Occupation – Kelly Baker will talk with us about the effects of Israel's occupation on Palestinian children. She will share a short video titled "Detaining Dreams" which features the stories of four Palestinian children arrested by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank and prosecuted in the Israeli military detention system.
