Take Action / Getting involved

The lives of Palestinians are either invisible or distorted in the mainstream media. That’s why it’s so important that you stay informed and share what you learn with your community.

  Dear Friends, Each year for our Tree of Life journey, we urge our travelers to recognize not only the occupation of Palestinian land and resources in an insidious system that can only be called Apartheid, but we also visit the unrecognized Bedouin communities of the Negev where Bedouin, even though citizens of Israel, are treated as second class citizens,...
