Child Detention: Palestine to Milwaukee to U.S.-Mexico Border

Child Detention: Palestine to Milwaukee to U.S.-Mexico Border

2-4 P.M. Mitchell Street Library, 906 W. Historic Mitchell St. Milwaukee, WI 53204

Join us for a conversation and reading with Palestinian writer and human rights activist Yousef Aljamal. Local Milwaukee activists will be on hand to discuss connections between child detention in Palestine and the U.S. prison industrial complex, including migrant detention.

Yousef is on a speaking tour in the U.S. organized nationally by JustWorld International and we’re privileged that he is coming to Milwaukee. He grew up in a refugee camp in #Gaza and lived through the three major assaults that Israel launched on the Strip in 2008, 2012, and 2014.

Yousef recently translated into English the book “Dreaming of Freedom: Palestinian Child Prisoners Speak” and he contributed a short story to the anthology “Gaza Writes Back: Short Stories from Young Writers in Gaza, Palestine.”
