Adalah Justice Project brings vision of equality to US Congress
Adalah Justice Project arranged a delegation to DC in September 2018 with Chairman of the Joint List group in the Israeli Knesset, MK Jamal Zahalka, and Hassan Jabareen, General Director of Adalah: The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel.
