Results Information

Program Name: Jewish Voice for Peace
Problem

As a community of Jews and allies we work to hold the US accountable for their continued support of the Israeli occupation, and ongoing persecution of Palestinians.

Strategy

Changing US policy toward Israel/Palestine will take a powerful social movement with multiple points of entry. The key to our success is our ability to meld grassroots, legislative, educational, digital, and media advocacy strategies into a coherent whole, and embed that strategic agenda in a welcoming political home base. This approach has built one of the largest and most active bases not only in the Palestinian rights movement, but in progressive Jewish organizing on any issue.

IF:THEN

IF If we hold the US government accountable for the ways in which they support Israel in upholding the occupation and persecution of Palestinians...

THEN then a human rights focused resolution may be possible in Israel/Palestine.
