18/11 Jerusalem: Standing Together for English-speakers - Introduction

Hillel Barak

Come and learn about Standing Together!

This will be an introduction to Standing Together for English-speakers. Standing Together is a grassroots people's movement based in Jewish-Arab partnership, socialist values, and hope. We organize people from all across the country on local and national campaigns for peace, equality and social justice in order to transform Israeli society.

At the meet-up we'll learn about recent campaigns and projects and how to get involved in Jerusalem! Just a few of Standing Together's recent campaigns include:
- Mobilizing against the Nation-State Law
- Leading and organizing the women's strike and protesting gender-based violence (including organizing the largest women's rights protest in Israeli history)
- Standing up for asylum seekers and refugees
- Climate Crisis Project - a new national initiative around environmental and social justice
