On this Christmas Day episode, we have a conversation about Palestinian struggle for freedom, prison abolition, and anti-semitism. Our guest is Melissa Nussbaum Freeman, National Organizer from Jewish Voice for Peace. JVP is a Jewish American grass-roots organization that opposes anti-Jewish, anti-Muslim, and anti-Arab bigotry and oppression. They seek an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem, and peace and justice for all peoples of the Middle East.
Melissa recently spearheaded the organization’s “Shine a Hanukkah Light on Abolition” series.
