Lara Alqasem Legal Fund

$16,147 of $18,000 goal

Raised by 329 people in 9 months
Created October 5, 2018
Lara Alqasem, a 22-year-old U.S. citizen, was denied entry into Israel on October 2nd and has been detained in Ben Gurion Airport since then, despite having received a student visa from the Israeli Consul in Miami, FL.

Alqasem was traveling to Israel to pursue a Masters in transitional justice at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. However, Alqasem was racially profiled upon arrival, and has been litigating through the Israeli courts to be permitted to enter the country and pursue her studies.

Hebrew University wrote a letter of support for Alqasem, and University of Florida professors (where Alqasem pursued her undergraduate studies) are also vouching for her character.

By litigating, and therefore challenging the oppressive policies of the Israeli government, Alqasem is acquiring steep court and attorney fees. Alqasem's case has ramifications beyond Alqasem herself. Please consider making a contribution to Alqasem's mounting legal fees. Not only will you be helping Lara Alqasem pursue her education, you will be supporting an effort to resist an unjust system--which will impact many more.
