Ever thought your research skills weren't as good as you wished they were? Or that you’d like to adapt the skills
you’ve learned in school to your political work? We at MEIA-G certainly have!
We were finally able to confirm an AMAZING research expert who is going to provide us with easy-to-understand
tools to help us research our upcoming MEIA-G divestment campaign. We will also learn how to apply these new
skills for future campaign research.
Also! Our goal is that the skills acquired at the workshop can be applied to all sorts of political and educational
research in our lives. WOW!

Sisters and Brothers!

must continue to organize our communities here in Georgia using and honing our skills to build a local movement
working toward the liberation of Palestine and in opposition to Israeli apartheid!
Join us on February 7th from 1:30 pm – 5pm in the IBEW Auditorium located at 501 Pulliam St. SW Atlanta, GA
