resources for supporting Palestine





Welcome, friends. Following our Creative Voices for Palestine virtual event in January 2024 to raise our collective voices in creative protest against genocide, military occupation, and displacement, we wanted to create an ongoing compilation of resources to support Palestine. Our aim is for this blogpost to become a living document we'll continue adding to as we discover new resources (feel free to send more our way), so please feel free to bookmark this post for future reference. Below, you'll find resources for learning, supporting, celebrating, and amplifying Palestinian voices.
