SCHEDULE - MEET THE WOMEN OF BUDRUS


IRENE R. NASSER - BIO
Senior Manager, Jerusalem Office
"I believe in this work because we don`t have the luxury not to believe in it."  



JULIA BACHA - BIO
Budrus Director/Producer

"We are providing alternative role models in a complex and changing world. I have seen people challenged, inspired and motivated to take action based on the stories we tell."

ILTEZAM MORRAR - BIO
Activist Featured in Budrus

"I believe in nonviolence and peaceful resistance even more because it helped us achieve something. Large amounts of land were supposed to be confiscated from the people of Budrus but because of these demonstrations they were only able to take a small portion of the lands that they planned to take, and they moved the Wall to the Green Line." 



RONIT AVNI - BIO
Founder/Executive Director of Just Vision and Budrus Exec. Producer

"Most social change in the world today starts from the bottom up and eventually takes root at the higher echelons to become policy- environmentalism, feminism, the civil rights movement - the list goes on. The
Israeli-Palestinian conflict is no different. Politicians will ultimately follow, but I am concerned with who will lead."

RULA SALAMEH - BIO
Education and Outreach Coordinator, Palestine, Budrus Producer

"My own personal story effected my life and gave me the power and energy to change the reality around me. I know it will take time, but my child and all children from both sides deserve the hard work we all are doing."
