Chicago Study Group

From Jewish immigrant labor organizers in New York City, to people working for social justice in Europe and Latin America, to the Black Panthers– many organizations have used study as an integral part of building movements.  Chicago IJAN has worked to build on these legacies, using political education to inform our anti-Zionist and Palestine solidarity work. Our ten-session study group began in September and will go until mid-January. We hold meetings every two weeks for two hours at a time. The material includes academic articles, poetry, creative nonfiction, film, and art work. Group members take turns facilitating.  Our study group has been an overwhelming success, and have about 10 core participants.  Plans are percolating for future continuations and new versions of the study group!
