About the Role
The recent violence unfolding in Palestine and Israel, highlights more than ever, the urgent need for peaceful, nonviolent support.
Act for Peace has a vision for peace across the world, and works actively in communities where peace is threatened. One such area in need of support is Palestine, where every day, persecution and human rights abuses destroy people’s lives and fuel further conflict.
We desire a just peace, where people living in Palestine and Israel can live with freedom, dignity and security based on international law and human rights. As such, when local communities in Palestine asked for solidarity, EAPPI – Ecumenical Accompaniment Program in Palestine and Israel was established.
EAPPI stands with both Israeli and Palestinian peace and human rights groups, focused on engaging in peaceful strategies and non-violence. Specifically, the program sends Accompaniers to spend three months working alongside local communities in Palestine. They perform duties that include; walking children to school to prevent harassment, attending and reporting on home demolitions, accompanying Palestinian farmers to their fields, and observing at checkpoints. Due to the peaceful presence of Accompaniers, local communities have reported a significant impact in the reduction of violence.
There are now 23 countries involved in EAPPI worldwide. In Australia, EAPPI is managed by a volunteer Committee and Act for Peace.
