Palestine Trek 2020 Crowdfunding!

November 04, 2019

After a successful and empowering first trip last year, Berkeley is organizing our second Spring Break trip to Palestine! The trip is open to UC Berkeley students. The purpose of Palestine Trek is to introduce trekkers to Palestinian heritage, history, people, and culture, to expose the reality of life under military occupation, and to elevate the Palestinian narrative. Palestine Trek will contribute to changing the discourse on the Israel/Palestine conflict by critically engaging graduate students through a robust week-long trip to Palestine. In the current political climate, this goal is more important than ever. During the trek, students will meet activists, artists, business people, and politicians, and visit heritage and religious sites.

 

UC Berkeley’s Palestine Trek 2020 trip has received over 100 applications! We could have twice as many trekkers this year as last, and that means it’s more urgent to raise funds than ever. With your help, people won’t have to choose between their politics and their wallet. We are trying to raise $15,000 this month in order to help subsidize the cost of participation! Please donate now: https://crowdfund.berkeley.edu/project/16471

Week #1 updates: thanks to our generous donors, we are announcing our new STRETCH GOAL of $20,000!

February 10, 2019

We’re already one week into our campaign! Will you join us in making history?

 

So far, we have raised $10,325 from 81 generous donors. A huge THANK YOU to our generous donors for helping us reach our initial $9,600 goal in just 10 days! We are overwhelmed by and so grateful for all of your support!

 

But this is just a fraction of our goal. We have created a NEW stretch goal of $20,000, which will further subsidize the cost of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If you haven’t contributed yet, there is still time! Please visit tinyurl.com/PalTrekUCB to make your tax-deductible gift today and to share our project. The more people we can reach, the more support we can give to our students! Please continue to show your support by sharing or donating today!

 

In community and solidarity,
