61] – Maya Berry [] wants you to join the last segment of Gaza 101: A Mini-Course in Four. Discussions of Israel/Palestine in the West all too often neglect to include Palestinian voices, particularly those from Gaza. As such, inaccurate depictions of Gaza and its citizens abound. The story of Gaza is one of powerful tradition and deep resilience, and that is the Gaza to share during this program.  Part 4: The Economics of Gaza will take place on Thurs., March 3 from 12:30 to 2 PM ET. REGISTER at  The moderator is Dr. Jim Zogby, Founder and President, The Arab American Institute.  The speakers are Asmaa Abu Messed, Economic Development Specialist with Oxfam International and Omar Shaban, Founder/Director of Pal Think.
