I'm an MIT engineer who believes deeply in human rights, justice, and peace. I began my work in the Middle East in 1990 with a New York Times op‐ed, “Small Lights in the Darkness,” which asked my neighbors to join in a message of light to stop the build-up to the first US-Iraq war. My essay was translated into Arabic and presented to the Iraqi Women’s Federation just before the First Gulf War began and they were deeply moved. Please join our sessions at RightsCon focused on opening the blockade of Gaza and assuring Palestinian planning rights. Please join our #GazaLightMessage tonight to let people in Gaza know that you care.
