What I Saw, What I Heard

Witness: Palestine by Ginger Gouveia

In 2011, Waldport resident Ginger Gouveia spent six weeks in Israel and Palestine. Together with six other Americans on the “Prospects for Peace” tour she worked with both Israeli and Palestinian organizations involved in human rights and peace issues. To gain a deeper understanding of the situation in the Occupied Territories, she stayed in the homes of eight different Israeli and Palestinian families, and returned with striking photos of what she witnessed during her time there.

She will share through commentary and visuals her first-hand perspective of what she saw and what she heard during her experience in one of the most complex regions of the world.
