about us

Friends of Mossawa is a non-profit sister organization of the Mossawa Center based in the United States.

The Mossawa Center, the Advocacy Center for Palestinian Arab citizens in Israel, is a non-profit, non-governmental organization established in 1997 that aims to promote the economic, social, cultural and political rights of the Palestinian Arab citizens in Israel, and the recognition of this community a national indigenous minority, with their own national, cultural and historical distinctiveness. The Center develops programs to promote a democratic society, and acts against all forms of discrimination based on race, nationalism, religious affiliation, social status, gender, and disabilities.

Friends of Mossawa extends the work and reach of the Mossawa Center by promoting the civil rights of Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel, raising awareness about the inequality and discrimination they face, and educating the public about the issues facing their community.

Our work includes meeting with public officials such as Congress members and Senators, hosting events, and fundraising.
