Take a Stand

  1. RAISE AWARENESS

Help others to learn more about the psychological realities of children and families in Israel and the Occupied Palestine territories, by inviting Palestinian or Israeli children’s rights, humanitarian or peace organizations to speak in your community, or encouraging a local theater to show a documentary on the subject.

2. VOICE YOUR CONCERNS

* Write your elected representatives asking your government to provide humanitarian funding to protect children caught in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and to apply pressure on both sides to ensure that children and their families are never targets of violence.

* Write to Israeli and Palestinian officials in your country, urging that both the government of Israel and the Palestinian Authority act at all times in the best interests of children

* Write your newspaper and magazine editors, asking them to increase their coverage of the impacts this conflict has on Palestinian and Israeli children and families.

3. BE INFORMED

Join the e-mail list of a children’s rights or a peace group for current updates on the issues facing children in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, or talk to those who have direct knowledge of the area.
