Travel with the third African Heritage Delegation from October 25 - November 7, 2014!

The African Heritage Delegation is an intensive educational experience and opportunity to learn about the current situation in Palestine/Israel. 

Hear directly from Palestinians and Israelis, bear witness to the realities of the occupation and discriminatory policies, and support those working for justice by bringing their stories and struggles back to your community.

African Americans and others of African descent are encouraged to apply today. Others may support the project with a donation to the scholarship fund and sharing the project!


Features of the Delegation:

The African Heritage Delegation program raises awareness, heightens activism, and further links struggles between African Heritage communities in the US and those working for justice in Palestine/Israel.  

The program provides an intentional space for participants to examine questions of race and ethnicity within the context of Palestine/Israel.

Delegation participants come from a variety of backgrounds and movements - Civil Rights, Black Power, South African anti-apartheid and anti-racist organizing - a diversity that enables rich and multi-dimensional group learning.

By creating an opportunity to explore present or past connections between struggles that communities of color face in Palestine/Israel and the US, we hope to strengthen the work for global justice.


Delegation Leaders and Local Guides:

IFPB delegations offer a combination of experienced leaders from the US with local multilingual guides who bring a range of knowledge and perspectives. The 2014 African Heritage Delegation leaders are:
