hrough its professional staff of different backgrounds and expertise, the CAC aims to empower the disadvantaged Palestinians of East Jerusalem to access their rights and entitlements and negotiate the complex bureaucratic procedures that control the flow of these rights. This mandate translates into empowering local residents to organize to solve collective problems with particular attention to social and economic inequality, and to mobilize their own volunteer capacity.
Vision & Mission
The Community Action Center’s MISSION is threefold: to empower individuals and communities living in East Jerusalem, who were, are and will be denied basic social and economic rights; to make Jerusalemites aware of their own civil entitlements;
to access and build on other existing rights-based organizations in order to develop the basic, essential civic capacity needed in order to empower Palestinian civil society at all levels.
