Our Goal


In response to the growing crisis of the denial of basic rights, forced displacement and other forms of violence, the Community Action Centre initiated a new Advocacy Unit. Our goal is to challenge and stop the measures that seriously threaten the Palestinian Jerusalemite community. We believe this can be done by finding and working collaboratively with other groups and individuals - at both the local and international levels - who support the rights and entitlements of Palestinians in Jerusalem to safe, productive, healthy lives, with their families, in their communities.

We want to mobilize informed and active supporters who work with us to get action from the international players (for example, key third state governments, EU and UN bodies) that are needed to stop the State of Israel from introducing and implementing illegal and discriminatory laws and policies that deny basic human rights to Palestinians.
