Nora is a first-generation Palestinian born and raised on Ohlone Land. She has organized with the Arab Resource & Organizing Center (AROC) since 2014, where she was a youth leader in the Arabic Language Pathways, Stop Urban Shield, and Block the Boat campaigns. Most recently, Nora was a youth coordinator at AROC where she organized Arab high school and college students.
Nora was president of Students for Justice in Palestine at UC Davis from 2018-2019, where she coordinated anti-racist and abolitionist actions. She is currently an M.A. student in Social Sciences at the University of Chicago. Her research interests include ethnographic documentation of the Palestinian-American diaspora, the larger War on Terror, digital surveillance, and policing. In her organizing work, Nora builds with other communities impacted by state violence, and she hopes her scholarly work will embody her commitment to solidarity and liberation for all.
