In the US, we are proud to work in partnership with the following organizations:

The Fellowship of Reconciliation
Founded in 1914, the Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR) works for peace, disarmament, and racial, gender, and economic justice. Growing out of its Middle East peace work stretching back to the 1970s, FOR established the Interfaith Peace-Builders program in 2000.
FOR currently works for peace with justice with its Task Force on Latin America and the Caribbean, Nonviolent Youth Collective, Iran Initiative, and Creating a Culture of Peace.Interfaith Peace-Builders maintains a strong and mutually supportive relationship with FOR. Since 2006 we have continued to received parial funding from FOR, and we continue to represent FOR in Israel/Palestine.

The American Friends Service Committee
The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) was founded in 1917 to provide young Quakers and other conscientious objectors an opportunity to serve those in need instead of fighting during World War I. AFSC works for peace in Israel and Palestine by promoting self-determination and equal rights for all. Active in Palestine since 1949, the AFSC is currently working on Faces of Hope: A Campaign Supporting Nonviolent Resistance and Refusal in Israel and Palestine. One part of Faces of Hope is Ziyarat az Zeitoun (Arabic for Visiting the Olives)—an educational and advocacy project that highlights Palestinian culture and current political realities through focusing on the Palestinian olive harvest.

Interfaith Peace-Builders and have collaborated delegations since Fall 2006, linking IFPB’s experience and expertise in planning and preparing delegations with AFSC’s extensive education and outreach network and ties to Palestinian olive farmers.

The National Peace Foundation
Interfaith Peace-Builders and the National Peace Foundation began working together on delegations to Israel/ Palestine in early 2008. This collaboration promises to open new dimensions to our work in the Middle East.

The National Peace Foundation (NPF) is a 25-year-old international NGO that empowers and supports the efforts of a wide network of citizen peacebuilders in the US and abroad. As part of its mission in civic and health diplomacy, NPF has designed and hosted over 100 citizen exchange delegations of emerging leaders from Eurasia and the Middle East and facilitated their engagement and dialogue with American communities and professionals. NPF has offices in Washington DC, North Carolina, Wisconsin, as well as international offices in Halifax, Moscow, and Cape Town.

The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation
The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation is a diverse coalition of over 200 member groups working for freedom from occupation and equal rights for all by challenging US policy towards the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Campaign is based on human rights and international law, providing a non-sectarian framework for everyone who supports its Call to Action. Its strategy is to inform, educate, and mobilize the public so as to change the US role in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to support peace, justice, human rights, and international law.

While not an official partner organization with Interfaith Peace-Builders, IFPB is a member of the US Campaign and works closely to coordinate work with them at the national level.  Interfaith Peace-Builders works with the Campaign to plan and send Action Alerts on congressional lobbying, participates on the Resources Task Force, and encourages delegates to learn more about the Campaign and its work. On the US Campaign’s website you can see groups in your local area working on the issue, learn about legislative issues, including viewing the voting record of your congressional representatives on Israel/Palestine issues, and access a variety of informative resources for learning more and sharing with others.
