Raising Awareness for the Palestinian Plight
The main focus of our campaign is to increase awareness of the oppression that Palestinians have continually been put through. Our target audience is the Hunter College student body.
Palestinians are not only constantly neglected in all major media outlets, and news sources, but they’re always portrayed as villains and terrorists. They continue to face misrepresentation and scrutiny in the media daily. Major news sources like FOX, CNN, and the BBC consistently portray stories demonizing the Palestinians and in a way have monopolized the thoughts of the majority. Our goal is to expose the truth to at least Hunter College.
One idea was to create a video that’d showcase not just footage of the oppression Palestinians go through, but that’ll consist of facts and statistics, as well as interviews of students to show just how misinformed of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict Hunter College is.
Another idea is to jointly work with the SJP (Students for Justice in Palestine) of Hunter College to form an event that’d increase the awareness of students on the conflict. We haven’t fully thought what this idea out, but we are excited about it. We will film all our activities and interactions with people, and compose a final short documentary about our whole campaign.
