Just Peace for Israel/Palestine

Just Peace for Israel/Palestine (JPIP) is a group of people committed to supporting a peaceful and lasting resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian situation. JPIP works 1, to educate ourselves and inform others about the history of Palestine and Israel, and the  current difficulties in finding a just peace; 2, to work with people of good will everywhere, to end the Israeli Occupation of Palestine, ensuring security for both Israelis and Palestinians; 3, to call for an authentically neutral broker in place of the United States to facilitate the achievement of a meaningful peace; and 4, to urge that the United States suspend military aid to Israel until it ends the Occupation and conforms to the Foreign Assistance Act, which stipulates that our military aid be used for legitimate self-defense and internal security.

JPIP also supports boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) in order to end the occupation and colonization of Palestine, advocate for the fundamental rights of full equality of Arab- Palestinian citizens of Israel, and promote the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties or to be adequately compensated as stipulated in UN Resolution 194.

JPIP offers an array of educational resources that can be found at: https://www.mepeacewnc.com/resources. Learn more about JPIP at https://www.mepeacewnc.com/.
