We finally wrap up our coverage of the Balfour Legacy Conference held in Cambridge, Massachusetts on November 11th, 2017, today featuring an extraordinary panel on intersectionality…the relationship of all human rights struggles with each other and the power of that recognition.

The first to speak on the panel is Matowin Monroe, co leader of the American Indians of New England. She is also lead organizer for the Indigenous Peoples Day which works to get communities to recognize Indigenous People’s Day in lieu of Columbus Day, as was done by Cambridge in 2016.

Matowin is followed by Gabriel Camacho whose parents emigrated from Mexico in the 1990’s. Gabe has served on the boards of a myriad of Latin organizations, and currently is the Immigration Programs Coordinator for the American Friends Service Committee.

The next panelist to speak is Carl Williams, currently a staff attorney with the ACLU of Massachusetts, and former defense attorney for the Roxbury Defenders. He is active with the National Lawyers Guild, and is a Lecturer at the Northeastern Law School.

The final speaker is Nadia Ben-Youssef, a lawyer and human rights activist and the first US representative for Adalah, the legal center for Arab minority rights located in Haifa, Israel. She is now developing Adalah’s US advocacy strategy to shape American discourse and influence US policy and practice in Palestine/Israel.

This is the FIFTH of five consecutive shows covering the conference "Balfour’s Legacy: Confronting the Consequences," held on November 11th at the First Parish Church in Cambridge MA.
