Take Action

Convene a teach-in on current U.S. and United Nations policies regarding the status of Palestinian refugees. Let your elected representatives know your own views on the issue.

Include the film in a training workshop for psychologists and social workers. Focus the workshop on identifying stressors that lead to violence and ways to help people who have been raised in violent communities to heal.

Use the film as a writing prompt and write/tell your own story about a return to your hometown for a visit. Compare your story with Fleifel's story and with the stories of others in your group, paying special attention to the role that citizenship plays in people's experiences.

Organize a study circle to research and report on the current status of competing political groups in Ain el-Helweh (e.g., the Palestinian Authority and Fatah and Jund al-Sham).
