How do you see Israel? A holy land? A stolen land? Or something in between? In a land of many narratives, few are well known. We had the opportunity to hear the personal stories of one Palestinian woman, and one Israeli woman. Neither of them had experienced a meaningful interaction with the other group until their adult years. Stories such as these shape the world's perspective of Israel. Our hope is to promote communication in order to spread peace with the message on this shirt.
