Abstract:  A group of activists are working to create a Nakba Museum of Memory and Hope in Washington, D.C. The project aims to tell the Palestinian refugee story, one that has been silenced or ignored for too long.
Its goals are to:
* Empower refugees by finally inviting them to tell their stories and share their experiences,
* Educate Americans about the Nakba and its continuous impact on present day life of the Palestinians,
* Build international solidarity and empathy with the Palestinian refugees who are scattered around the World,
* Make it known that the Nakba is not only an historical event; it is an ongoing process that has continued since 1948,
* Build a legacy that speaks to both peoples that sharing the land is indeed possible.
They are raising funds to launch the museum. To contribute, or for more information, see https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nakba-museum-project-of-memory-and-hope
