On 3 February 2010 she discussed her case again, this time with a gathering on "The Right of Palestinians to Study and Travel" at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Unable to get the Israeli-issued permit she needed to leave Gaza, Berlanty communicated with the Washington, DC gathering via audio link. Read the Ma'an News story here.
