Adalah Justice Project

Glen Carbon, United States
Joined August 2018

Adalah Justice Project aims to transform American perception, policy and practice in Palestine/Israel into a human rights approach that guarantees historical justice and equality for all.

Presence in: Israel, State of Palestine, United States
Focus: Citizenship, Education, Governance, Health, Housing & Sanitation, Labor & Employment, Land & Natural Resources

The Adalah Justice Project, founded in 2017, uses community organizing, advocacy, and art to advance Palestinian human rights. AJP began as the US Program of Adalah – The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, and the two organizations cooperate closely to advance a shared vision of full human rights for all people living in historic Palestine, the end of the occupation, and historical justice for all Palestinians.
