As the largest Jewish-Arab grassroots movement in Israel, Standing Together has become an essential voice during this difficult moment in Israeli history. Sally and Alon-Lee will share personal stories about the work they have done and the support system they have created through their thousands of members to maintain a group of dedicated Jews and Arabs who are devoted to creating a society capable of achieving peace, equality, and social justice for all. At a time when hope feels hard to come by, their work for a better future is a true inspiration.
Standing Together is a grassroots movement mobilizing Jewish and Palestinian citizens of Israel in pursuit of peace, equality, and social and climate justice. While the minority who benefit from the status quo of occupation and economic inequality seek to keep us divided, we know that we the majority have far more in common than that which sets us apart. When we stand together, we are strong enough to fundamentally alter the existing socio-political reality. The future that we want peace and independence for Israelis and Palestinians, full equality for all citizens, and true social, economic, and environmental justice is possible.
