Founded in April 2021, we are an emerging grassroots movement for peace between Israelis and Palestinians. We are building trust and driving change from the bottom up. We do it through peaceful dialogue and peace activism.
We are committed to changing the terrible status quo that prevents millions of Palestinians from basic human rights, corrupts Israelis' values, and prevents the entire region from living in security and prosperity. We believe that solving the I-P conflict should be a top priority both for Israelis and Palestinians.
Our mission is to promote peace. We believe that a joint online community of peaceful Israelis & Palestinians can drive attitudinal change at the societal level and policy change at the political level.
It is a movement based upon nonviolent activism designed to advance the termination of the occupation and to provide a foundation for relations between the two peoples subsequent to a peace agreement.
As for resolving the conflict, whether it is two states for two peoples, one joint state, or any other creative solution, we all agree that a solution must be found in which Palestinians and Jews live in freedom, equality, and security. We believe in a fair peace that is based on international law principles.
Here are the three main elements of IP4P that makes us unique:
An I-P peace movement in which all segments of the population may be represented and feel equally important (led by women and men, Palestinian and Israeli).
We are active not only in Israel and in Palestine, but also around the world. Our official language is English so that both Israelis and Palestinians feel equal, and other individuals from around the world could easily participate and contribute.
We hold weekly activities, both online & on the ground at multiple locations
