Our Window of Opportunity (WOO) Grant launched earlier this year as a pilot program. Open to previous Leeway grantees only, the grant is meant to fund time-sensitive opportunities to support their art for social change practice. We are happy to announce June's grantee.
Nehad Khader (ACG ’08) will travel to Chicago in July to document a farewell event held in honor of Rasmea Odeh, Palestinian American community organizer, former political prisoner, and elder, who will be deported and stripped of U.S. citizenship this August. Nehad will continue to deepen her relationship with Rasmea, her supporters, and the Palestinian American organizing community in Chicago. Nehad will produce media that she hopes to share with Palestinian communities across the country.
