Current Israeli government policies act on the principle that only people of Jewish heritage should inhabit historical Palestine. The Israeli state explicitly seeks to establish and maintain a Jewish identity, both in what is now Israel proper and in the UN-designated Palestinian territories. This creates a system where Palestinians, whether Muslim, Christian, or non-secular, are living under apartheid.

We seek to educate and advocate on behalf of Palestinian civil and human rights. We will do this by advocating for Rep. Betty McCollum’s bill Promoting Human Rights for Palestinian Children Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act​ when it is reintroduced in the 117th Congress.

This summer, we will be co-producing an Art of Palestine to uplift and celebrate Palestinian voices.

Israel was established in 1948 as a Jewish nation. However, the state was built on historic Palestine, where millions were already living. This caused a mass expulsion of Palestinians from their homes. 


Today, Israel commits a trove of human rights abuses, including illegal settlements on Palestinian land, bulldozing homes, segregated highways, restrictions on water and electricity, ID systems that give Palestinians less rights than Israelis.
