Over the course of the past three years we have worked tirelessly to raise funds to bring a cohort of ICAN Graduate Fellows to Montreal, the first since 2008. We have a brilliant cohort of nine Middle Eastern Fellows studying for their MSW degrees at McGill and have, for the first time, introduced a Syrian Fellow into the group. They are inspiring organizers with diverse backgrounds in health, law, engineering, social work, psychology, communications, education and more.
Read about what we are doing today, on the ground in Palestine, Jordan and Israel, as well as in North America.
