By allmepadmin / February 7 2018

In an interview with Fathom Journal, ALLMEP Regional Director Huda Abu Arqoub discusses how her past experiences shaped her into a prominent Palestinian peacebuilder

focused particularly on the voices of women in the region. From childhood, Huda has challenged false narratives and pushed to explore the way we describe the ‘other.’ Raised by a family who fostered curiosity, intellect, and the pursuit of truth and justice, Huda’s childhood helped shape her into an intersectional feminist who is passionate about the viability of peacebuilding and the necessity of breaking the ‘status quo’ in a region marred by physical and mental barriers. Huda believes that change can occur through movements like Women Wage Peace, a focus on the politics of acquaintance, and challenging the anti-normalization movement. To do so, she calls for an understanding that there are thousands of partners, both Israelis and Palestinians, who are willing to compromise in the name of a better future.
