Showcasing Unsung Heroes in the Middle East

By Becky Garrison 02-22-2011

During my interview in Sojourners (December 2010) with Julia Bacha, director and producer of the film Budrus, we elaborated on the ordinary grassroots activists she met in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories who are involved with nonviolent efforts to end the occupation and resolve the conflict. As we watch the news coverage of the conflicts transpiring in Egypt and elsewhere in the Arab world, let us not forget those who are working behind the glare of the media spotlight to find peaceful ends to these conflicts.

In an ongoing effort to continue to draw attention to those who are walking the walk, Just Vision produced a slideshow -- "Ten Unsung Visionaries of 2010" -- that gives some glimpses of light into these dark days.
