Kayla was a volunteer with the International Solidarity Movement in Occupied Palestine in 2010. She worked with the ISM in Bil'in, Hebron and other villages, as well as in Occupied East Jerusalem. After her time with the ISM, Kayla also worked with African refugees at the African Refugee Development Center in Tel Aviv.
I have included below the ISM's tribute to Kayla, as well as a report on her death from the New York Times.
As the many tributes to Kayla have revealed, she was a young woman who dedicated herself the struggles for justice and human rights, standing always in solidarity with the oppressed.
In solidarity, Kim
