Connecting the Dots: The Role of Protests in Remaking Israel’s Democratic Landscape

June 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Israeli protest movements are working right now to frustrate the plans of pro-settler extremists and to energize Israelis to push for a better future.

Join NIF on Tuesday, June 4 at 1 PM ET / 12 PM CT / 10 AM PT for a webinar where we will unpack what has been going on on the ground at the protests.

Come hear from three inspiring women about their efforts. Learn how these protests are emblematic of a broader NIF strategy to pushback on extremists, to build partnerships that matter, and to build a path to peace.
