Our role as peacebuilders requires us to listen to both sides of the conflict, to address the underlying causes of violence, and to seek just outcomes that advance the dignity of all people.
Palestinians live under occupation, starved of the most basic human rights and freedoms. Ending decades of conflict and violence between Israelis and Palestinians requires not just an immediate halt to the attacks on both sides, but also an end to Israel’s occupation and a renewed search for a just and secure future for all people in the region.
We stand with all Palestinians and Israelis working fervently to end the cycles of violence and forge a peaceful path for the future. The work of local peacebuilders in the region has never been more urgently needed than now.
