Palestine in America presents: Palipalooza!
Today, I’m writing to you to announce Palestine in America’s annual event and journalism workshops our organization is offering to the community.
Palestine in America will host a fun night filled with live entertainment, literature, food and artwork. This annual event is called Palipalooza and this year will take place Saturday, August 13 at Aladdin Banquet Hall in Chicago suburb Hickory Hills.
The purpose of the event is to celebrate the release of our annual print magazine and share Palestinian culture by putting talented Palestinian Americans on the map.
Palipalooza’s lineup will include dancers, rappers, singers and musicians who play traditional Palestinian instruments. Tickets are now on sale for only $25 and a meal is included with the purchase.
Palestinians and their supporters from across the country should not miss out on the opportunity to be a part this unprecedented event. There are only 150 tickets available, get yours before it’s too late!
Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the release of Palipalooza’s full lineup.

Palestine in America Journalism Workshops
PiA is now also offering media and journalism workshops at universities and schools in Chicagoland and across the U.S. We have led workshops for high school students at the Arab American Action Network, college students at Students for Justice in Palestine’s annual Midwest Conference and are scheduled to present at Loyola University Chicago during Israeli Apartheid Week in April.
Our workshops focus on how Palestine is portrayed in the media, the importance of the Palestinian narrative being told accurately and what it takes to be a successful respected journalist, as well as running your own news organization.
