NEW! Quaker Network forming for Palestine Israel Action


PIAG is delighted to announce the formation of QPIN, (Quaker Palestine Israel Network), a new, national Quaker network dedicated to Palestine Israel Concerns. We hope you will join us! 

Exciting new initiatives by Meetings across the country (and indeed internationally) have given us hope that the way has finally opened for nationally organized action.

Most recently, Lake Erie Yearly Meeting has joined Britain Yearly Meeting, AFSC, and religious and civil society organizations around the world in support of the boycott of products made in Israel’s illegal West Bank settlements, and divestment from companies that support Israel’s military occupation and repression of the Palestinian people. 

The purpose of the QPIN network is for Quaker activists to share ideas, energy, and experiences educating their own Meetings about Palestine Israel concerns, and to provide guidance for Friends who hope to educate their Meetings about the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement and encourage their Meetings to take action. A Steering Committee is being formed to determine QPIN’s goals, structure, and processes, to set up networking tools, and to grow the organization by finding and supporting new members.

    I am a member of JVP and have been an activist in the Palestinian struggle for peace and justice for many years. Wish there was a Friends meeting place near me in northeast Broward.
