About this event

Please join the Arab and Middle Eastern Journalists Association for an evening honoring Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.

Abu Akleh, a veteran Al Jazeera journalist and beloved household name in Palestine and beyond, was killed by an Israeli sniper while covering a raid in the occupied West Bank on May 11, 2022.

AMEJA is hosting a panel event in Washington, DC to honor her memory and raise money for a scholarship in her name for Palestinian women pursuing journalism degrees. The panel, featuring a roster of top reporters, will discuss coverage best practices and safety for Middle Eastern women in the field.

Tickets to the event will be free to the public, but we ask that attendees donate what they’re able to the Shireen Abu Akleh Memorial Scholarship, a fund established by the American University of Beirut and the Yafa Foundation that will provide scholarships for Palestinian women to pursue media studies masters degrees. Cash, checks and Venmo donations will be accepted at the event. Donations will go to the American University of Beirut, a 501-c-3 not for profit organization

If you are unable to attend the event, please email through this event page or jennyrose579@gmail.com for more options to donate. You can also donate via AUB’s designated donation page for the scholarship, and let us know!

Refreshments and a cash bar will be available at a brief reception prior to the panel. Everyone entering the National Press Club must show a proof of vaccination and a photo ID.

More information on our panel below. If you have any questions regarding the

 event, please email jennyrose579@gmail.com. We hope to see you there–
