This is no joke....Eric Goldstein & Alisa Doctoroff funnel Jewish charitable dollars through the UJA-Federation to this vile anti-Israel group. Email them and tell them to Stop! Tell your friends, Close Your Wallets! - Richard Allen

When I became Just Vision's Executive Director in January, I knew the journey ahead wouldn't be easy. Just Vision launched in 2003 to support Palestinians and Israelis working to end the occupation and build a rights-respecting, pluralistic and just future.
What we knew then still holds true: change doesn't happen overnight or by chance. It takes countless acts of courage and resilience to transform our communities, a media to amplify these efforts and a commitment to those who dare to imagine -- and settle for nothing less than -- a future that holds everyone with dignity.
Even in these difficult times, change is not only possible, it's already underway. Where politicians have failed, Palestinian and Israeli human rights defenders, community organizers and activists are leading the way. Just Vision provides a media megaphone and connects the dots between strategic networks at home and abroad so they can continue to gain traction, influence and ultimately, achieve freedom and equality.
With your support, we've made tremendous strides. Here are a few highlights from 2015:
- Local Call, our Hebrew-language news site launched with +972 Magazine, is disrupting the Israeli mainstream media with stories of human and civil rights, exposing discriminatory policies with hard-hitting investigative journalism and highlighting voices of dissent across the region. In 18 months, we've reached nearly 1.5 million readers and catalyzed national attention on issues that are chronically underreported, generating more than 100 follow-up articles, features or citations in mainstream Israeli outlets. Thought leaders, policymakers and major media players including Yedioth Ahronoth, Channel 2 and Channel 10, rely on our coverage, and whistleblowers and activists now turn to us as one of the only resources they trust to tell their stories accurately.
- We launched an initiative on the First Intifada to highlight the lessons learned and themes of courage, creativity and unity from that era. As part of this initiative, we've been proud to partner with the award-winning documentary, The Wanted 18, bringing the story of a Palestinian-led civil resistance movement in the village of Beit Sahour to thousands through direct outreach and hundreds of thousands more through media coverage. We're now in the final phases of production for our Guggenheim-backed media project on the women leaders who formed the backbone of the First Intifada.
We have a lot to be proud of, but we need your help to keep up the momentum in 2016. Will you help support our work?
- Through our public engagement efforts, we've garnered over 75 articles in international media outlets including The New York Times,The Guardian, MSNBC, NPR, BBC, Al Jazeera, The Jewish Week and beyond with stories about Palestinian and Israeli human rights defenders and the impact of the occupation and inequality on communities across the region. In the US and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, we have reached nearly 10,000 university students, youth, community leaders, journalists and diplomats in over 100 programs and screenings.
Our work is painstaking, increasingly urgent and requires a commitment to a long view of change. We know meaningful change requires pressure from the bottom-up, and that the grassroots leaders who are forging the way depend upon the attention, protection and support of international and local communities.
Together, we expand the realm of what is deemed possible and in doing so, inspire new ways of thinking among journalists, decisionmakers, faith communities, students and thought leaders. We exist because of the generosity of people like you.
You have the power to sustain and propel this work forward. Please support Just Vision with a tax-deductible contribution today.With appreciation,
Suhad BabaaExecutive Director
