Once Upon a Palestine: Sowing seeds in the Minnesota community

Welcome to the AMP blog, where we will be regularly posting blogs on a variety of topics - all for and around Palestine. We’ll discuss Palestine news, advocacy, culture, people, and much, much more. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, where we’ll update you when a new blog post is up!

For our first blog post, we’d like to highlight some of the work being done by one of the ten chapters of American Muslims for Palestine. AMP-Minnesota is one of the oldest - and one of the most active chapters to date - from being involved in local campaigns from the viral #BoycottPillsbury BDS initiative to mobilizing for the most progressive legislation on Palestine to date coming from their Representative Betty McCollum.
