The Chicago Palestine-Israel Program provides resources, mentorship, and training to activists engaged in educational and advocacy/policy change campaigns related to Palestine-Israel peace and justice issues. AFSC works to change U.S. understanding of and end support for current injustice in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory in order to bring about social and political changes that will contribute to ending the Israeli occupation, guaranteeing Palestinian human rights, and building equality for Palestinians and Israelis. Current campaigns include Gaza Unlocked and No Way to Treat a Child.
Join us as we work with young organizers, faith-based activists, and community groups to deepen skills and knowledge, create and share organizing resources, increase collective actions, and develop support for effective economic activist and advocacy campaigns that challenge US militarism and build support for equal rights for all people in Israel and Palestine. The work includes leading advocacy campaigns and building capacity and training among Palestinian youth organizers.
