Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, expresses our deepest condolences to the Barakat family and to all friends and colleagues of Adil Abdulrahman Barakat upon his passing.
Adil Barakat was a beloved leader of the Arab and Palestinian community in California and the United States who remained deeply committed to Palestine throughout his life. He had a profound impact not only on his family and close friends, but on the lives of so many people he touched throughout his long and distinguished life.
May he rest in peace and power.
