The Team at FIYAHCON stand in solidarity with the people of Palestine in their ongoing struggle for freedom and self-determination against the perpetually escalating violence of colonialism.
In the same way we supported the National Bail Fund Network in 2020, this year’s event will seek to distribute charitable funds to Palestinian community organizations and mutual aid funds, and we welcome Palestinian authors, creators, and activists to share our platform and resources free of charge if we can be of any assistance in amplifying their works. Any requests for support can be sent directly to director(at)theconvention.fiyahlitmag.com.
Palestine: you’ve shown up for us, especially for Black Americans, consistently and for decades. We see you, we value you, and we share our opportunities with you just as you share our struggles.
We encourage people who are unfamiliar with the Palestinian fight to educate themselves by following—but not requiring labor of—Palestinian voices on social media, or by visiting decolonizepalestine.com for a thorough introduction. We also highly recommend checking out the special Palestine Issue from our friends at Strange Horizons and support the contributors to it.
