Heather La Mastro, a school teacher in Berkeley, recently traveled to occupied Palestine. She visited several refugee camps, hospitals and pediatric mental health care programs in the West Bank and Gaza Strip administered by the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund (PCRF). Heather will share her stories meeting Palestinian people, especially her students’ Palestinian pen pals in Gaza.
She will be joined by Priscilla Wathington, the Managing Editor for Defense for Children International – Palestine (DCIP), an independent, local Palestinian child rights organization based in Ramallah. Priscilla will speak about the most pressing human rights concerns facing Palestinian children living in the Gaza Strip at this juncture and the grave number of child fatalities at the hands of Israeli forces that DCIP documented in 2018.
