In 2015, AFSC and Defense for Children International-Palestine launched the No Way to Treat a Child campaign to challenge the Israeli occupation of Palestinians by exposing the systematic ill treatment of Palestinian children in Israeli military detention. Since then, the campaign has mobilized Quakers, other faith communities, and many others across the U.S. to urge Congress to work to stop the detention of Palestinian children and end the occupation.

We hope you and your meeting/church will join our efforts!

As part of the No Way to Treat a Child campaign, Christian communities have passed church resolutions, developed curricula to study the issue, hosted speaking events, and organized visits with families impacted by detention during trips to the occupied Palestinian territory. They have also successfully advocated members of Congress to support legislation calling for an end to U.S. support for the abuse of Palestinian children, including H.R. 2590, a groundbreaking bill to protect Palestinian human rights. 

Our Quaker Palestine Israel Network (QPIN) has a goal to engage 100 Quaker meetings and churches in the campaign by the end of 2022.
