“The trip did so much to show us the lived experience of Palestinians, but also to problematize and not hide any of the complicated aspects of our own interactions in this space as outsiders. I was inspired by the incredible Palestinian activists we worked with and feel energized to bring this work back to the US.”

“Three or four years ago, when people came to demolish, we had no photos or videos. Now, if the bulldozers come, we have 10 people with cameras and within minutes, we have people all over the world watching. We know that people are with us…When you tell us that CJNV is returning next year, it makes me very happy because it shows you trust me. I don’t need people to come for just one year, we want a relationship that continues.”

“After returning to the U.S., the embodied memory of my time with CJNV– the coresistance, the connected struggle, and witnessing the urgency and stakes of the problem continue to fuel, clarify, and sharpen my organizing.”

Choose Solidarity and Coresistance!

CJNV is building networks of solidarity and co-resistance to upend the systems of division and oppression against Palestinians. When those in power choose to ostracize and oppress, we choose to link arms in struggle. Make a contribution today.
