Eran Nissan is the Project Coordinator at Israel's Peace Now movement, the Israeli sister-organization of Americans for Peace Now. This summer, he is one of eight fellows participating in the annual summer program of Washington's New Story Leadership (NSL), and interning at APN.
In this conversation, Eran tells the story of his becoming a political activist, following his service as a combat soldier at the Israel Defense Force.
Eran and his fellow NSL scholars will be featured in a subsequent episode of PeaceCast next month, when we live-record this year's edition of The Dove, our annual storytelling event. Stay tuned.
This special episode features a visit to the newly launched Museum of the Palestinian People in Washington DC.
I was joined by my daughter Noa Nir, who participated in interviewing Nizar Farsakh, the chair of the Board of the museum.
