For United Methodists and church activists in numerous denominations, Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) has been a vital partner in advocacy for the human rights of the Palestinian people.
Jewish Voice for Peace has courageously challenged Zionist ideology in the Jewish American community and blazed new trails with their antiracist and intersectional justice work, in the US and worldwide.
Today JVP is an indispensable leader in the global movement for Palestinian rights; their work is a major factor in the changing U.S. discourse about Palestine.
Join us on July 21st to learn more about this remarkable organization, their roots and growth and current work, as well as insightful analysis of the situation today in Palestine/Israel.
We will hear from JVP’s Organizing Director, Lisbeth Melendez Rivera, who has extensive experience organizing across the intersections of diverse justice movements in the United States, including in her last position as Director of Faith Outreach & Training at the Human Rights Campaign.
We are also privileged to have joining us the leader of the JVP Health Advisory Council, Dr. Alice Rothchild, a practicing physician and Harvard professor for decades, a filmmaker, and an esteemed author and political analyst on Palestine/Israel.
