Join Us for a Screening of “Detaining Dreams”

The American Friends Service Committee and Defense of Children International Palestine have launched a joint campaign titled No Way to Treat a Child. They are spreading the word about the widespread and systematic ill-treatment of Palestinian children in the Israeli military detention system. Join us for a screening of the film “Detaining Dreams.”

It’s a documentary film sharing the stories of four Palestinian children arrested by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank and prosecuted in the Israeli military detention system. Beth Miller, of Defense of Children International Palestine and a Tzedek Chicago member, will be with us to share her experience working with DCIP and to lead the discussion about the film.

This presentation of “Detaining Dreams” is organized by Jewish Voice for Peace-Chicago as part of our organizing with the national No Way To Treat A Child Campaign to end the Israeli military’s detention of Palestinian children. If you’d like to get involved in this campaign, or have questions, e-mail lynnpollack@gmail.com
