Dr. Khalidi spoke about community organizing and solidarity in the struggle to define ones self when pursuing justice for ones own cause. He details the years of hard work that proceeded this moment when the tide of public opinion has shifted from looking at Palestinians as terrorists to seeing them as the rightful victims of a historical wrong and the self destructive policies of extremist Israel. Dr. Khalidi talks about the years of work that have led to changing the narrative of Palestinian identity in the U.S.; campus organizing and the role of the BDS movement; the significance of Palestinian films being screened for the Oscars; and most recently the Superbowl and New York State and City controversies that resulted in victories for the Palestinian cause. He notes the significance of prominent members of the New York City Jewish community informing its new mayor that they do not support the Zionist polices of Israel and that neither AIPAC or Israel represents their values or speaks for them.

Her story is told during the "Town Hall Meeting: Justice for Rasmea Yousef Odeh" at Radio4all.net.
