Why Palestine Matters, The Struggle to End Colonialism uses an intersectional lens to link the struggle for justice in Palestine with other human rights struggles. The framework of intersectionality highlights linkages among all struggles for racial, economic, gender, immigration, education, mass incarceration, and climate justice. 

This course examines settler colonialism as the structure that undergirds the history of injustice on a global scale. By placing Palestine in a global context, participants are encouraged to link Palestine with other struggles for justice. What emerges is a dynamic theory of change based on cross-movement organizing, creating alliances to address systemic injustice, and building a movement for human liberation of all people everywhere.
