Kelvin Sauls was born and raised in townships south of Johannesburg, South Africa and became a leader in the anti-apartheid movement through his local Methodist Youth Fellowship. After a career in pastoral ministry he now serves as the Network Strategist at Community Health Councils in Los Angeles and is a Senior Fellow with the Atlantic Institute for Racial Equity where he is engaged in faith-rooted multi-racial and multi-faith community organizing through sacred resistance and moral re-imagination.
    Kelvin hosts a monthly podcast, β€œFaith Without Borders,” is a Co-Founder of the Black Alliance for Just Immigration and serves on the boards of multiple movement-building organizations working towards a more just, fairer and inclusive society. After a 2008 Holy Land pilgrimage, he joined the United Methodist effort to oppose the occupation of Palestine.

Sandra Tamari is a Palestinian, a lifelong advocate for Palestinian rights. In 2012, Israel barred her from entering Palestine because of her activism. A specialist in Arab studies and education, she is currently the Executive Director of the Adalah Justice Project, a Palestinian advocacy organization based in the U.S. that incorporates the struggle for Palestinian rights into existing liberation movements around the world.
    Sandra, who is based in St Louis, Missouri, organized the Palestinian contingent to Ferguson in 2014 in response to the killing of Mike Brown. She was co-chair of the Steering Committee of US Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR) from 2015-2018.
