Progressive Israel Network Launched
Partners for Progressive Israel along with Ameinu, Americans for Peace Now, Habonim Dror North America, Hashomer Hatzair, The Jewish Labor Committee, J Street, The New Israel Fund, Reconstructing Judaism, and T’ruah have officially joined together in support of a progressive vision for Israel. The Progressive Israel Network (PIN) will provide a strong, unified voice in support of its members’ common goals: democracy and equal rights, religious freedom and pluralism, and a two-state solution that would secure a peaceful future for Israel and end the 52-year-long occupation.
PIN will weigh in on the significant challenges that face Israel and the US-Israel relationship. It will coordinate campaigns designed to mobilize the majority of American Jews who share its progressive values and goals, support the work of Israeli progressives, and urge the US government to adopt policies that further Israeli-Palestinian peace. PIN will fight against US and Israeli policies that promote annexation, entrench occupation and undermine liberal democracy in Israel.
PIN will actively participate in the upcoming elections to the 38th World Zionist Congress to be held Jan.-March 2020. (See article by Hadar Susskind on p.10). For more information on PIN see its opening statement on our website.
