Personal information

Full name
Samir Nassar

As a third-generation Palestinian refugee, Samir feels a deep sense of solidarity with all peoples who endure collective punishment and oppression, and with communities affected by displacement and diaspora. Recognizing the power of communication to bring awareness—and in turn, bring change—Samir considers effective communications as a key strategy for ending human rights violations. As an Upper Midwest Human Rights Fellow he worked with the New Tactics in Human Rights Project at the Center for Victims of Torture to develop electronic outreach and educational tools, as well as outreach material in English and Arabic.

Since moving back to his native Palestine, Samir continues to work with organizations to help them develop communications and technology strategies to advance human rights.
