Washington, DC - Palestinian Americans directly impacted by the conflict between Israel and Hamas will share stories of how family members are coping with the violence and humanitarian crisis in Gaza, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem. As most mainstream media coverage focuses on the wider crisis, Palestinian Americans will detail their concerns and fears for American family members trapped in Gaza and the West Bank. They will also share what they hear directly from family members.  

These Palestinian Americans are speaking out because they feel their families and Palestinians have been forgotten and, as a result, left vulnerable by the U.S. media and the U.S. government.
