The Adalah Justice Project, founded in 2017, uses community organizing, advocacy, and art to advance Palestinian human rights. AJP began as the US Program of Adalah – The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, and the two organizations cooperate closely to advance a shared vision of full human rights for all people living in historic Palestine, the end of the occupation, and historical justice for all Palestinians.

She holds a Masters degree in Arab Studies from Georgetown University, and from 1991-1993 lived and worked in the West Bank and Jordan, where she was Fulbright scholar learning among Palestinians in the Baqa'a refugee camp in Amman. Prior to her work with AJP, Sandra served as the Senior Program Manager for AMIDEAST, the Assistant Director of Georgetown University's Center for Contemporary Arab Studies, and from 2008-2009 worked with Al-Jana, Arab Resource Center for Popular Arts in Beirut.
