GROWING PALESTINE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Ida is a US-born Palestinian who grew up in the occupied Palestinian territories and now lives in Centreville, Virginia, working as a freelance editor for various book and website publishers. She received a masters degree in American literature from the American University of Beirut and came to the DC area in 1980. Over the years, she has been involved with Palestinian and US community groups with an education and social justice focus. She is excited about working with Growing Palestine because it offers a concrete way to support a group that deserves focus—Palestinian farmers—and to promote Palestinian heritage.
