On December 15th, ALLMEP’s global network of supporters joined together alongside leading politicians from the United States and Europe as well as VIP guests from the world of entertainment to honor our community of Israeli and Palestinian peacebuilders.
2020 has been a dark year full of unprecedented challenges for peacebuilding in Palestine and Israel. When the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in the region, it immediately challenged the vital work of our network, which relies deeply on people-to-people interaction. Political volatility—both near and far from the conflict’s epicenter—has characterized much of the last twelve months. Yet our community adapted and persevered. ALLMEP has also secured passage of bipartisan legislation committing $250m toward our International Fund concept through the House of Representatives. Together, the collective resiliency of our member organizations and growing support for peace set the stage for 2021 to tell a very different story.
