  1. I am seeking information on what materials you have developed or use that are appropriate for PreK-12 young people about Palestine and the Palestinian people. Thank you.

    1. Hello, Jane, sorry to be so late in responding to you. Thanks for writing. That is an excellent question! MennoPIN does not have any materials that I know of, but I will check with various people and groups I know to find out what is out there. There must (and should) be something. I will get back to you as soon as I find something out.

      Joe Roos, for MennonPIN
