The NOCCCD SWANA FSA aims to increase the visibility of SWANA employees and students and to educate about our history and the social injustices that our communities endure. We are often absorbed by false statistics, and our achievements are not recognized, all while our social justice issues are not addressed. We also aim to provide funding for our educational and cultural endeavors to help others see us as who we are, not as what the media and especially Zionist propaganda portrays us. We recognize that our communities suffer from constant racial trauma and micro-aggressions from White supremacists and Zionists. We denounce the Palestinian Exception regarding free speech and we shed light on the Palestinian tragedies that have affected all our communities in the SWANA region. Therefore, it is essential to protect our communities from harassment and false accusations of racism, anti-Semitism, and terrorism when our communities exercise their free speech rights criticizing historical and ongoing colonialism. We recognize and aim to educate about the difference between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism. As the district liaisons for SWANA students and employees, we understand that we are diverse communities and are not a monolithic religious, racial, or ethnic community.
