Seminar on Civil and Mixed Marriages

Shirin Batshon, attorney and coordinator of the Legal Department of Kayan-Feminist Organization, gave a presentation on legal and social barriers to civil and religiously mixed marriages in Israel at the Youth Cultural Forum hosted by Baladna-Association for Arab Youth.  Another speaker in the seminar, Nadia Naamnih-Benaa, discussed her personal experiences with civil marriage.  Following the seminar, youth attendees were inspired to create a petition demanding the availability of civil and mixed marriages in their communities.
