Nobel Peace Laureates Jody Williams and Mairead Maguire will lead a delegation to Israel and Palestine from September 28 to October 5. They will bear witness to and learn from the struggles, creativity, and the inspiring work women activists in the region are doing to to promote justice and build sustainable peace.
The delegation will travel to Jerusalem, Haifa, Nazereth, Ramallah, Hebron and Bil’in. It will focus on spotlighting the work of women activists on the ground, providing a discussion forum for women on both sides of the conflict and collaborating on strategies for change.
The delegation will meet women who are ordinary citizens whose unwavering dedication has united them in an extraordinary movement to overcome conflict through non-violent protest and activism. Delegates will be meeting with women activists, policy makers and women’s leaders, filmmakers, members of the Knesset, women from the military–among others.
