Last summer, the 21 year old, spent two months in the West Bank working for human rights using the same methods as Rachel Corrie. Joy volunteered with Christian Peacemaker Teams, the organization that helped found the International Solidarity Movement. While in Palestine , Joy accompanied Palestinians as they attempted to stand between bulldozers and olive trees that were being uprooted to make way for a 25 foot high wall constructed by Israel inside the West Bank . Since Joy has returned home, she's shared her experiences with more than 500 people. She will return to Palestine again this summer. Friends of Sabeel - North America
