Stories matter. Stories have power. Stories have the power to change people.
At J Street, storytelling is at the core of our organizing work. It is through stories that we teach about and build support for our vision of justice, equality and security for Israelis and Palestinians; stories give an individual name and a face to a larger societal and political problem; stories build empathy. For the Advocacy Corps, telling personal progressive stories about Israel and Palestine will allow us to build our movement, our community and our individual capacity to be change makers.
Join New Story Leadership for a virtual conversation about storytelling as a tool for social change. Activists from Israel and Palestine will share their personal experiences of living through this conflict. Together we will explore the power of personal narratives and discuss what we can do to strengthen the relationship between Israeli, Palestinian, and American activists.
