Tonight's Meeting: Nahida Halaby Gordon

Hello, everyone! We here at the Olive Tree Initiative hope that you are enjoying this beautiful fall weather and that your week has been going wonderfully so far.

Tonight, we ask you to join us in welcoming Nahida Halaby Gordon, a Palestinian rights activist who helped lead the Presbyterian Church's divestment movement. She will be speaking about divestment, so please come prepared to engage in a discussion about this topic.

Additionally, this weekend, OTI at Cal's leadership will be joining the leadership of other chapters at a retreat in Big Bear. This retreat has been divided into two portions, the first portion serving as an organization-wide retreat and the second as a boot camp for members who are attending the continuation of this past summer's Olive Tree Initiative student delegate trip. We are excited to make use of this productive space to discuss chapter and organization improvements, and also to meet new members.

Until next time, and the very best of wishes,
Nisa Dang
Director of Public Relations and Media Outreach
