Media Committee
This committee's concentration has been in writing letters to the press in response to negative and positive media coverage of Palestinian and Arab issues. Some of its future activities might include setting up workshops to expand this to the other members, writing press advisories for our events, setting up press conferences, or establishing relationships with mebers of the press.

Outreach Committee
Besides reaching out to various groups for participation in our events, this committee is responsible for writing letters of solidarity for all the movements we support, setting up speaking engagments for our members at all relevant solidartiy rallies and events in New York. Some of its future activities might include locating and contacting organizations, shops, places of worship, individuals and informing them about events, getting their sponsorship, gauging their participation, forming a phone/contact list of these peoples, maybe making a phone tree, giving a core list to all members.

Civil Disobedience Committee
This commitee is non-functioning right now. It will continue to be non-functioning until a large number of people start to express interest in civil disobedience.

Education Committee
This committee's short-term goal is to set up teach-ins in every school in the tri-state area between now and April 6th, hoping to attract as many participants in the April 7th Right Of Return rally as we can. Our more long term goal is to set up Arab sensitive curriculum or lesson plans for HS and JHS teachers to teach from.
