Palestine in America co-sponsors Janna Jihad event in Chicago

Palestine in America co-sponsors Janna Jihad event in Chicago

The US Palestinian Community network is bringing the world’s youngest officially registered journalist to the Chicagoland area and Palestine in America is proud to be a co-sponsor.

Janna Jihad’s first appearance will be at the Arabic speaking event at Al-Nahda Center (10555 SW Hwy) in Worth, IL on Aug. 8. The next day she will beat Grace Place (637 S. Dearborn) in Chicago for the English language event. Currently, she is touring the US and has already made stops in New York and Washington D.C.

Jihad began reporting to present the perspective of Palestinian youth growing up amid violence. Early on, she used her mother's iPhone to capture videos of protests near her home. She would upload them to Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube. Eventually she began covering events and marches in Jerusalem and Jordan. She reports in Arabic and in English. She has over 270,000 followers on Facebook.

In 2017, hosted by the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation, Jihad went to South Africa to spread awareness about the violence in Palestinian territories as part of the Pals4Peace tour with the Shamsaan Children of Palestine. In March 2017 Tamimi was awarded an International Benevolence Award in Istanbul, Turkey.

Palestine in America will have a table at both events. Stop by our table to learn more about our organization and become a subscriber.
