Vivien Sansour of Canaan Fair Trade (based in Jenin, Palestine) will present photography and stories from her work with organic fair trade olive farmers in Palestine. At the end of the night, we will be giving away a selection of Canaaan Fair Trade products (including bottles of olive oil, olives, za’atar and tahini) to a few lucky participants by lottery.

Free Palestinian food will also be served.

The event will close with a performance by the Columbia University Dabkeh Troupe.
