Her PAYCE research was about bridging perspectives, experiences, and increasing youth awareness of their civic rights in both Palestinian and US communities. This workshop helped Renad rethink in both American and Palestinian context of Human Rights enjoyment, exploring the gaps of Human Rights enjoyment between the USA as a Developed country and Palestine as a Developing country. Her final report titled “Art became my voice”, is available on PAYCE website at https://www.buzzsprout.com/215436/885560-art-became-my-voice. In 2019, Renad seized an opportunity to train at the Independent Commission of Human Rights Office at Hebron-Palestine (ICHR). ICHR, as a governmental organization, which tries to empower Palestinian rights encouraged me her to take more steps to improve the Palestinian awareness of their national and international rights, and to work more to engage the international Human Rights Law IHRL in support of ICHR, other Human Rights institutions, and Palestinian citizens rights.
