Friends of Mossawa and the Mossawa Center recently returned from a two-week outreach program in the United States and Canada. The tour, which was led and organized by Friends of Mossawa, included meetings and events in Washington, D.C, Toronto, Ottawa, New York, and New Jersey.
The Mossawa Center stands in solidarity with the Ethiopian community in Israel following the shooting of 19 year-old Solomon Tekah at the hands of Police officers.
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 Arab citizens of Israel in North America to be able 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 Arab community in Israel.
We host and participate in events across North America in order to educate the public about the issue.
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.

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.
