Dear Friends, Partners, and Achvat Family,
When speaking with potential participants, we always say that we don’t have a better succinct term to describe Solidarity of Nations - Achvat Amim than as a program, but at our core, we are a movement building platform. As a movement building platform, we weave together communities in diaspora and on-the ground, we build frameworks for shared resistance, and we support our Palestinian partners in their daily struggle for freedom and justice.
After carefully considering the needs of our participants and partners, we have decided to restructure Achvat Amim for the fall and provide programming for those already in Israel-Palestine. While we will not be bringing internationals to live communally in September, we will be continuing our work as a dynamic and creative movement building platform.
We will be guided in this next period by the question that has always been at the core of our mission: how can we build the movement for peace, justice, and self-determination? We want to be responsive to the current moment and respond with nimbleness and agility to the needs of our Israeli and Palestinian partners, and to you, our wider community.
We are eager to explore what the fall will look like for Achvat Amim and the movement, while remaining steadfast to the values of solidarity, personal and world transformation, and community building. We look forward to welcoming our February 2021 cohort when they arrive on the ground. Our February cohort will be essential to reinvigorating and supporting projects that have been affected by the pandemic.
Stay tuned for exciting updates! Great things ahead.
Your Tzevet (team),
Dana, Julie, & Erez
