In partnership with the New Israel Fund (NIF), join us for a virtual conversation with Standing Together co-directors Rula Daood and Alon-Lee Green. Alon-Lee and Rula Daood are dedicated peace activists at the forefront of a grassroots movement uniting Israelis and Palestinians in pursuit of peace, equality, and social justice, including climate justice. Hear directly from the organizers on the ground as they share their perspectives on reshaping the current narrative and the path forward for achieving systemic societal change, and learn what you can do to help.
Rula Daood is the National co-Director of Standing Together and speech pathologist by profession. She is a Palestinian citizen of Israel, born and raised in the Galilee village of Kafr Yasif and began her activism in her home city and later became involved in promoting Jewish-Arab partnership in mixed (Jewish-Arab) cities. Before joining Standing Together, Rula worked as a community organizer, organizing events and protests that drew hundreds of activists.
Alon-Lee Green is the national director and a founder of Standing Together, the Jewish-Arab grassroots movement that mobilizes people around issues of peace, equality, and social justice. He got his start organizing Israel’s first trade union of waiters in a chain of coffee shops and went on to found Israel’s first National Waiters Union. Alon-Lee emerged as a prominent leader of Israel’s social protest movement in the summer of 2011, and subsequently served as a political adviser in the Knesset, Israel’s parliament.
