Overview 

The Alliance for Middle East Peace is a network of organizations that conduct civil society work in conflict transformation, development, coexistence and cooperative activities. They work on the ground in the Middle East with Israelis, Palestinians, Arabs, and Jews. Our members seek to build a secure, just, and sustainable peace where all can enjoy the rights and freedoms necessary so as to reach their human potential and live in peace with one another with dignity.

Our mission is to support our members by ensuring more attention and resources are dedicated to their groundbreaking work. To accomplish this, the Alliance works on an international level to educate key audiences, including opinion makers, elected representatives, government officials, American and international funders, and the international community about the critical opportunities and needs of people-to-people efforts. In the region, the Alliance works to build a community within its membership, enhance better communication among them, build their organizations’ capacities, develop best practices, and serve as a platform for partnership and cooperation.

Accomplishments

FY 2004 – FY 2016

 

Ø  ALLMEP has secured more than $80 million in U.S. funding for people-to-people peacebuilding efforts in Israel/Palestine.  Despite large cuts to foreign aid, our efforts have contributed to over $200 million in federal grants to people-to-people efforts worldwide.

 

Ø  ALLMEP is building an International Fund for Israeli-Palestinian Peace, poised to pour at least $200 million annually into the region. This will leverage international, public, and private support so as to dramatically scale up grassroots peacebuilding efforts.

 

Ø   ALLMEP connects NGOs to decision makers. Since its inception, it has coordinated more than 600 meetings with Congress, the White House, Israeli and Palestinian leaders, prime ministers, foreign ministers, the State Department, USAID, European and Arab governments, and the media, thus promoting and growing people-to-people peacebuilding efforts in Israel/Palestine.

 

Ø  ALLMEP has earned the support of 112 United States senators and members of Congress, who have signed letters urging passage of its annual appropriations requests. 

 

Ø  Since 2004, ALLMEP has grown from 12 to over 90 member organizations, which help support the organization through annual dues.  Each year, Alliance members engage and assist hundreds of thousands of Israelis and Palestinians.

 

Ø  ALLMEP launched its regional office in 2014 as a response to the growing need for the development of ways to elevate the impact of the members’ work on the ground. The regional office also works to build a sense of people-to-people community and to create a community dynamic enough to bring sustainable change to the region. The Alliance has dedicated staff on the ground focused on providing training, support, and member services to the growing membership.

 

Ø  ALLMEP has created dozens of partnerships between its members and served as a hub of best practice and strategic thinking for its membership. With conferences, trainings and capacity building activities, our members increasingly see ALLMEP as a key part of their success.

 

Core Values

 

Ø  Peace in the Middle East is not possible without the collective support from people in the region working towards a just peace agreement.

 

Ø  People-to-people encounters are an effective and necessary strategy to create sustainable and collective public support for peaceful mutual coexistence on equal grounds and reconciliation.

 

Ø  Support for civil society programs in the Middle East is one crucial way that the international community, U.S. Government, and private philanthropists alike can positively move the people of the Middle East towards peace.

 

Ø  Cooperation between civil society organizations themselves builds the impact of their work on the ground to become a stronger movement for change.
