Since 1948, AFSC has maintained a presence in and worked with both Palestinian and Jewish populations in Israel. Today, AFSC’s Israel Program works to counter the militarization of Israeli society, understanding that widespread acceptance of militarism is one of the factors sustaining inequalities, occupation, and conflict.

AFSC works with several partners in Israel to counter militarization of the Israeli society, including Israel Social TV, Orfud – Refuse, your people will protect you, New Profile, the Druze Initiative Committee, and others.
