No Way to Treat a Child
October 5, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Each year an average of 700 Palestinian children ages 12-17 – most of them accused of throwing stones – are prosecuted in Israeli military courts operating in the West Bank. From the moment of arrest, Palestinian children encounter ill-treatment, abuse, and in some cases torture at the hands of Israeli soldiers, policemen, and interrogators. Former Friends School teacher in Ramallah and American Friends Service Committee member Jennifer Bing, and long-time educator Joyce Cassel of the No Way To Treat A Child Campaign discuss this very serious issue and lobbying efforts before the US Congress. This event is free and open to the public.
