A dinner and gathering to share space and strategies at the intersection of food and organizing for a free Palestine.

Sumoud and Food: Building a Long Term Movement for a Free Palestine

Join Palestinian chefs Reem Assil, Marcelle Afram and Omar Anani in Detroit for a curated dinner and gathering of community members, activists, and folks in the food and hospitality sector to ground ourselves in the importance of sumoud (Arabic for steadfastness). We’ll be sharing stories, experiences, and strategies for how we can build a lasting and deeper movement both for the liberation for Palestine and for the liberation of all who have suffered from the violence of the U.S.-Israel war machine.

While we collectively grieve the 35,000+ Palestinians lives lost, we must gather in our collective spirit with food, culture, and love for humanity in order to build our collective power. Our radical joy in these connections will strengthen our fight for justice for the long-haul.

We look forward to a powerful evening of delicious Palestinian food and transformative conversation!

This is a community-organized event and all our time is donated. Tickets are sliding scale and all proceeds after cost of food and materials will go to a campaign initiated by Gaza Kitchen author Laila El-Haddad to support farmers and communities hit hardest by the genocide to build towards self sufficiency and away from aid dependency.
