Shared Society & Combatting Racism

Fostering More Than Just Coexistence

NIFC works to advance a society in Israel that is truly shared among its citizens, and to combatting racism and discrimination against minorities all kinds, including non-citizens residing in Israel.

The deepest rift in Israeli society is between Jewish and Palestinian citizens (sometimes called Israeli Arabs). In addition, there are troubling disconnects and enmities between Jewish sectors of the public.

Our strategy focuses on creating shared spaces for Jews and Arabs at the national and local levels, including in the media, and on delegitimizing expressions of racism in the general population and by public figures.

Examples of recently-funded projects include Tag Meir’s solidarity visits to victims of price tag attacks and terrorism.


Now and the Day After Education

Tag Meir is a coalition comprised of 48 organizations from across the religious-secular spectrum that works to combat “price tag” attacks and hate crimes. Our 2022 project will provide urgent support visits to victims of hate crimes, as well as events that demonstrate solidarity between all types of Israelis.
