Adalah Justice Project was founded in 2017 as the outgrowth of Adalah’s US Program, an initiative that began in 2014 to identify the avenues and targets for strategic advocacy in the United States.
Our advocacy priorities are developed in partnership with our sister-organization Adalah, a leading Palestinian legal center and human rights organization that uses Israeli legal channels to protect the rights of Palestinians.
Adalah Justice Project also works closely with partners across social justice movements in the United States to identify shared human rights concernsand coalesce around common messaging, campaigns and goals.
Adalah Justice Project translates Adalah’s legal efforts and analysis for American audiences, and develops joint-advocacy strategies with communities in the US challenging shared systems of oppression and state violence.
These themes encompass the current, strategic priorities of Adalah, which include:
Challenging the Nation-State Law
Defending the rights of the Palestinian Bedouin in the Naqab against Israel’s forced eviction
Demanding accountability and the right to life
Fighting against settlements and annexation, and
Protecting the shrinking political space available to human rights organizations and human rights defenders
The challenges ahead are daunting, but we are making huge strides in building a stronger US movement for Palestinian rights.
We hear over and over from our partners in Palestine/Israel that their hope comes from abroad, from organizations and individuals who disrupt the status quo.
Adalah Justice Project is proud to be part of this movement to realize justice for all.
Thank you for joining us.
With love and solidarity,
Sandra and Izzy
