Please join us as we both celebrate our first two years and present the AIC Impact Award to Kay Wilson.
Kay is a British-born Israeli tour guide, author, jazz musician, cartoonist and peace activist. The survivor of a brutal machete attack that occurred while she was guiding in December 2010, she speaks to audiences all over the world about her ordeal. Her audiences have included American college students, the Israeli army, Christians and youth. As a representative of Palestinian Media Watch, she lobbies Western governments to end the foreign aid that rewards terrorists. As a peace activist, she housed Israeli Arab Mohammed Zoabi when he was being threatened with death. Two years ago Kay published her highly-acclaimed memoir, The Rage Less Traveled. She has been recognized by the Israeli police and Israeli Secret Service for her courage. Kay has served as inspiration to others, spurring them to act. Among those are the speakers for this event.

About the Atlanta Israel Coalition
The Atlanta Israel Coalition was founded in late 2018 by a group of committed volunteers who strive to unite the pro-Israel community in Atlanta and beyond. As a non-partisan non-profit group, the AIC seeks to inspire and educate through a collective effort. Through inclusive educational and community events, the AIC unifies a broad audience, regardless of faith or political affiliation. The AIC is a gathering place for multi-faceted conversations that combat media bias, a connector to foster a spirit of cooperation amongst pro-Israel organizations, and a means by which to amplify our collective pro-Israel missions.
