[In-Person] A Solidarity Reading & Art Auction for Palestine
[In-Person] A Solidarity Reading & Art Auction for Palestine


Presented by Global Feminists for Palestine & Asian American Writers’ Workshop, we invite you to a very special gathering space in support of  Palestine Legal. The event will feature readings by Sumaya Awad (former Open City Fellow) and Sarah Aziza (outgoing Margins Fellow), Jenna Hamed, Abeer Hoque, and Mira Jacob, and will be hosted by Haifa Bint Kadi and Mona Eltahawy. ASL will be provided by Pro Bono ASL.

There will be 200+ postcard sized artworks available for auction, and we’ll have books by the readers available for purchase and signing from our dear friends at Yu & Me Books.

Tickets are $25–50 for in-person attendees, and FREE for the Zoom live stream. If you attend the live stream, we encourage you to donate directly to Palestine Legal. If you would like to attend in-person and cannot afford the ticket price, please email dmanibo@aaww.org for a $0 community ticket.

All in-person attendees will receive a free copy of AAWW’s Best of The Margins.

Please note, the in-person event will begin at 6:30 for the art auction, and the live stream for folks at home will start at 7pm.



Global Feminists for Palestine is a New York City based community of BIPoC artists, writers, performers, and activists working toward a free Palestine and collective liberation via public arts events. In the immediate term, we seek to amplify and center Palestinian efforts for a ceasefire by building awareness, support, and allyship. In the longer term, and in solidarity with anti-colonial struggles everywhere, we seek to (a) build creative feminist community through activism, (b) cultivate a safe space for dialogue and learning through teach-ins, (c) raise funds for relief and rebuilding efforts, (d) champion third-world-feminist perspectives excluded from the mainstream, (e) promote community care practices and hold space for trauma and grief.

Founded in 2012, Palestine Legal is an independent organization dedicated to protecting the civil and constitutional rights of people in the US who speak out for Palestinian freedom. Palestine Legal is the only legal organization in the United States exclusively dedicated to supporting the movement for Palestinian rights. Our attorneys are based in Chicago, New York City and the Bay Area, and our work spans all 50 states and Washington D.C. We work closely with several organizations, including the Center for Constitutional Rights, the National Lawyers Guild and others, to provide legal support to activists around the country.



The event will be live streamed with auto captioning for those who cannot join us in-person. There is an elevator to the 6th floor. AAWW is a fragrance-free space. Masks are required for all attendees; if you forget yours, one will be provided for you. While a negative COVID test is not required, it is very much encouraged. If you have had COVID or have had known contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID in the 14 days prior to the event, we ask you tune in for the livestream instead. Please reach out to dmanibo@aaww.org for additional accessibility requests, ADA accessible bathrooms, chairs with added back support, and beyond. This space is for YOU!
