Our Work

The Problem We Address: A central mechanism of the Occupation is divide-and-conquer which isolates the efforts and struggles of communities and individuals, oftentimes pitting them against each other. This weakens and deflects those efforts away from the underlying problem, the system of Occupation.

How We Address It: CJNV strengthens and uplifts a robust and connected movement of Palestinians, Israelis and diaspora Jews committed to active shared-resistance. These relationships of solidarity and co-resistance disrupt the material and ideological systems that uphold Occupation and oppress communities on both sides of the Green Line.

We run delegations and campaigns which bring these communities together for Palestinian-led nonviolent civil resistance (Nonviolent Direct Action, Community Coresistance projects, and Critical Education), thereby modeling and amplifying the viability of shared-resistance. To find out more about past delegations, visit our Past Campaigns page.

We create a platform for coalition and joint-movement work that would likely be impossible given existing barriers between organizations and communities.

We build resistive relationships that transform what is possible in our actions and in each of us, shifting movement landscapes and upending injustice.

We boost and amplify the efforts of others in their communal and organizational strategic goals and in their cross-movement efforts.

Choose Solidarity and Coresistance for the Coming Year

Give today and help us continue our years-long and unwavering commitment to Palestinian activists in their non-violent struggle against the occupation, through building long lasting relationships and partnerships, and by bringing Jewish activists from around the world to engage in creative nonviolent activism.

This work--building partnerships and networks of solidarity--is what we need to face the challenges ahead. Partnership and coresistance upend the systems of division and oppression of Jews against Palestinians, and instead proclaims a vision solidarity, joint struggle and mutual support.

That choice is what is needed to take on the joined forces of division, bigotry and fear-mongering. When those in power choose to ostracize and oppress, we choose to link arms and struggle.

Now, as this calendar year comes to a close and the next one begins, join us in choosing solidarity and coresistance with a generous end of year contribution.

By joining in this end of year campaign and helping us reach our goal of $15,000 you are sustaining and bolstering years-long relationships and resistance work between Diaspora Jews, Palestinians and Israelis. Your commitment and investment helps strengthen and expand an unprecedented and boundary-pushing network of activists who choose solidarity and mutual liberation.

Already, in just a few weeks, another 50 Diaspora Jews will be in the West Bank standing alongside Palestinian and Israeli grassroots leaders in struggle against home demolitions and for freedom of movement and access to clean water.

After that, there will be more delegations, more opportunities to show up for our partners, and more moments to stand together and choose freedom and equality.

We all know that this doesn’t happen without countless hours spent planning, organizing, training, visioning and relationship-building. And, those hours are sustained by the support of hundreds of individuals like you and me who believe that solidarity and coresistance can upend the oppression the Israeli occupation and bring peace and justice to all of us.
