Advocating for peace in Israel-Palestine

Advocating for peace in Israel-Palestine

Since 1948 AFSC has worked with Palestinians, Israelis, and the international community to realize a just and lasting peace between Palestinians and Israelis. 

In the United States AFSC works to educate audiences about Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory and supports activist efforts to change government policies and corporate/institutional practices that support inequality and the ongoing Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territory. AFSC also supports the implementation of international humanitarian and human rights law in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory, promotes implementation of Palestinian refugees’ right of return, and calls for full equality between Palestinians and Israelis.       

For more information about our positions, see AFSC’s principles for a just and lasting peace between Palestinians and Israelis and read about our Israel-Palestine program’s strategic priorities.
