Friends of Mossawa is a US based sister organization of the Mossawa Center in Israel.
We aim to provide a platform and voice for the Palestinian citizens of Israel in the United States to affect the conversation surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and peace process.
We work to raise awareness among the American public about the inequality and discrimination facing the Palestinian community in Israel.
We host and participate in events in the US in order to advocate for a change in the status quo.
You can contact us to learn more about our work, schedule a meeting, and participate in or help organize an event.
In addition, we encourage you to donate to our cause in order to allow us to grow our reach and expand our influence.
Friends of Mossawa is a non-profit sister organization to 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 advocating for the civil rights of Palestinian citizens of Israel, raising awareness about the inequality and discrimination they face, and work to change public opinion in the US.
Our work includes meeting with public officials such as Congress members and Senators, hosting events, and fundraising.
