Young American activist Rachel Corrie was standing between the home of a Palestinian family and a bulldozer in a nonviolent direct action to demand the end to Israel’s illegal policy home demolitions when an Israeli bulldozer crushed her to death in 2003. Her family continues to fight for peace and justice in the world through the Rachel Corrie Foundation.
