Tamara Listenberg
American University, Class of 2024

A proud Israeli and Zionist, Tamara and her friends were instrumental in protesting the university sponsorship of an event featuring Mohammed El-Kurd. Tamara circulated a letter among AU students calling for university departments to rescind their sponsorships. As a result of Tamara’s diligent efforts, American University departments took action, dropping their support for the event. AU’s Sunrise Movement chapter also dropped its sponsorship and its members published a statement stating “We strongly condemn invalidations of Jewish trauma, including the comments made by the event’s speaker, Mohammed El-Kurd”. Tamara Listenberg is president of the Students Supporting Israel chapter at American University.
