Jewish Voice for Peace is proud to be part of a worldwide movement dedicated to the freedom, human rights and equality of all the people of Israel and Palestine. We are committed to struggling, along with all our allies, to build this movement on the basis of truth, accountability, and respect for the human rights and dignity of all peoples. To that end, it is incumbent upon all of us to vehemently denounce all forms of bigotry, including anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim hatred, and anti-Arab racism.
