RAPPer Spotlight: Nancy's Going to Palestine & Israel

Nancy Paraskevopoulos, a member of RAPP XXIV and recipient of the 2009 Terence L. Jones Diversity Award, is doing some amazing work this summer.

She's been accepted to go on a delegation to Palestine/Israel from July 25-August 5 to monitor US hegemony in the region through Interfaith Peace-Builders. In her two weeks there she'll be doing research as well as home stays with both Israeli and Palestinian families.

She's set up a blog that records her journey both in prep, while there, and after coming home called Beastin' in the Middle East. If you're on Facebook, you can also follow her fundraising progress through the Nancy's Going to Palestine/Israel group.

If you're able to help, Nancy is still in need of donations to fund the journey. I hope all goes well and can't wait to hear about her work there.
