Program Overview

Peace Now and APN offer practical, effective programs to advance the cause of peace and prevent erosion of past gains. In Israel, Peace Now mobilizes public support through mass demonstrations, and though: Israeli-Palestinian Dialogues, bringing together Israeli and Palestinian youth in the belief that strong, enduring peace is inevitable and achievable if both get to know each other as individuals, and to understand their cultures, histories and worldviews.
Settlement Watch, characterized by the New York Times as "the country's leading anti-settlement group," closely monitors and publicizes detailed information on existing and proposed Jewish settlements in the territories, including construction, government policies, and provocative or violent activity based on both ground and office research. In addition, Settlement Watch has also promoted creative policy recommendations for implementing peace agreements.
APN carries out Peace Now's mission in the U.S., advocating for pro-Israel, pro-peace policies in Washington, D.C., creating national programming to inform and educate American audiences, and raising funds for Peace Now. APN is critical in shaping the debate and mobilizing the grassroots in America. APN's Peace Messengers from the Middle East program creates forums for influential Israeli and Palestinian peace advocates to address audiences around the country about Middle East issues and pragmatic conflict-resolving ideas.
