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, Existence is Resistance, 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.

The world you want to see is built on connection.

CJNV's theory of change is simple: we believe that effective, principled and lasting nonviolent resistance to occupation and injustice can only emerge from authentic and long-term relationships between Palestinians, Israeli Jews and international Jews.

But cultivating relationships takes time, intention, and care. They can't just happen online. And they can't happen just once a year.

Help us answer this call from our partner Nasser, from A-Tuwani:
We crossed a threshold and we feel very strong. Across the region everyone is ready for another action and ready for even stronger actions. Everyone is asking when we will do a project with them.
