Friends of Taghyeer Movement in the U.S.
The Friends of Taghyeer Movement in the US welcomes your involvement and support for Taghyeer (Change) Palestine. Ali Abu Awwad, during the January 2020 US tour, shared how his personal story of struggle, and nonviolent activism, led to the founding of Taghyeer and its growth among activists, emerging leaders and communities in Palestinian society.
Facing the pandemic challenges of social isolation, on August 30 we held an inspiring Zoom Town Hall exchange with our Palestinian colleagues and with participants from across the U.S. and the world! We need Board and volunteer leaders for Friends of Taghyeer Movement in the U.S. Consider joining us in planning in the months ahead, and implementing a step by step move from fiscal sponsorship to independent 501c3 status. Our needs are for leaders in fundraising strategy; communications, social media and community engagement; expertise and activism in nonviolence and civil resistance -- to create a conflict transformation network building direct support and volunteer opportunities; and city and geographic area support groups for Taghyeer (Change) Palestine's vision and needs on the ground.
We will create together a revamped Friends of Taghyeer that can be a strong part of building a network of conflict transformation activists and funding and support circles in the US - knowledgeable and engaged with on the ground work of Taghyeer Movement.
