On January 17, 2014 the Rachel Corrie Foundation celebrated the conclusion of the Olympia portion of it’s first Leadership Studies Fellowship program. Visiting fellow, Anees Mansour traveled from Gaza to spend nearly three months with the foundation sharing with and learning from local nonprofit organizations. As the program drew to a close, friends gathered to share their memories of their time with Anees and to wish him luck in the future.

On Tuesday, December 10th, International Human Rights Day, we hosted a joyous evening in Olympia. Guest speaker, Linda Bevis provided an authoritative presentation on human rights violations suffered by Palestinians living under occupation and documented by the US Department of State, as well as her own journey becoming an advocate for the rights of all beings and creatures.  Thanks to Linda and to our honored guests Anees Mansour (RCF Leadership Studies Fellow from Rafah, Gaza) and Eva Bartlett (long-term ISM activist in Gaza) for joining the festivities. And special appreciation to Bayou on BayBevy, and the Women’s Club of Olympia for providing amazing food, music, and a festive space for all to enjoy! 

On Sunday, October 3, 2013, Laila El-Haddad, co-author of The Gaza Kitchen: A Palestinian Culinary Journey came to Olympia for a cooking demo at The Flaming Eggplant, on TESC campus. She taught approximately 30 people to make Dagga—which was enjoyed by all!
