Bio

Jennifer Moghannam & Palestinian Youth Movement

Jennifer Moghannam is the international Research and Development Coordinator for the transnational Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM) and a doctoral student of Ethnic Studies at UC San Diego. The Palestinian Youth Movement (“PYM”) is a transnational, independent, grassroots movement of young Palestinians in Palestine and in exile worldwide as a ,result of the ongoing Zionist colonization and occupation of our homeland. Our belonging to Palestine and our aspirations for justice and liberation motivate us to assume an active role as a young generation in our national struggle for the liberation of our homeland and people. Irrespective of our different political, cultural and social backgrounds, we strive to revive a tradition of pluralistic commitment toward our cause to ensure a better future, characterized by freedom and justice on a social and political level, for ourselves and subsequent generations. PYM believes in reviving grassroots bottom up organizing models through a transnational framework that follows three fundamental principles, return, liberation and justice.
