Janet Tollund - "When Travelers Visit a Country Under Occupation: What I've learned after leading tours in Palestine"

After earning a Master of Arts degree and following a first career in teaching French and English, Janet Tollund found her calling as a peace and justice activist while simultaneously pursuing a career as a tour director. Since 1982, she has traveled the world and led many group tours to the occupied territories of Palestine. 

Ms. Tollund will describe what she has observed over the years in the changes that have occurred in a land under decades of occupation. She will also focus on what she has learned in terms of the impact made on travelers who witness those conditions for the first time and how those experiences have altered their lives.
