Just Vision increases the power and reach of Palestinians and Israelis working to end the occupation and build a future of freedom, dignity and equality for all. We ensure their inspiring, under-documented stories reach audiences around the globe through strategic public engagement campaigns that undermine stereotypes, inspire commitment and galvanize action. Just Vision uses our award-winning films (including Naila and the Uprising, My Neighbourhood, Budrus and Encounter Point), digital media (such as Local Call) and community organizing tools to engage audiences in the US, Israel, Palestine and beyond, amplifying the courageous efforts of ordinary people who act in the face of challenging odds. Our overarching goal is to contribute to fostering peace and an end to the occupation by rendering Palestinian and Israeli grassroots leaders more visible, valued and effective in their efforts.
We are a lean team of human rights advocates, media strategists, filmmakers and journalists. Our team is based in Washington, DC, NYC, Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Just Vision is nonpartisan and religiously unaffiliated.
