The Parents Circle – Families Forum (PCFF) is an Israeli-Palestinian organization of more than 600 bereaved families who have undertaken a joint effort in the midst of ongoing violence to transform their most heart-felt loss and pain into a catalyst for reconciliation and peace.
For over 20 years, the PCFF have developed programs that emphasize the value of life, the necessity of respect, and a shared commitment to ensuring the dignity of both Israelis and Palestinians. PCFF’s work is vital: When the “other side” is hidden and demonized, any possibility of seeing the “other” as human disappears. Separation fuels misunderstanding and dehumanization of one’s perceived enemy makes violence and oppression easier to justify and perpetuate.
Come and meet Robi Damelin and Bassam Aramin who will share their insights on how PCFF seeks to pave a path for peace.
