Bridging The Divide: Israeli and Palestinian Activists from OneVoice

12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Negotiations between the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority have been stalled for years. With no plans on the horizon to renew negotiations towards a final settlement, grassroots voices must fill the void of silence and stagnation between these two peoples. At this event we will hear from Israeli and Palestinian grassroots activists about their struggle to end the conflict and how you can take part.

Moderated by Dr. Warren Spielberg, part time associate professor at The New School for Public Engagement, and member of Al Quds University, West Bank, who is also the director of the Co-Existence Initiative at The New School.

Speakers include:

  • Amro Brighith, a OneVoice Palestine member from Beit Ummar, near Nablus.
  • Or Kaner, a OneVoice Israel member from Shoham.

One Voice is an international mainstream grassroots movement, with offices in Tel Aviv, Ramallah, Gaza, New York, and London, that aims to amplify the voice of Israeli and Palestinian moderates, empowering them to seize back the agenda for conflict resolution and demand their leaders achieve a two-state solution.
