The Parents Circle – Families Forum is a unique organization made up of more than 600 Israeli and Palestinian bereaved families.
Since its establishment the members – all of whom have lost a family member to the conflict – have undertaken a joint effort in the midst of ongoing violence to transform their incredible loss and pain into a catalyst for reconciliation and peace.
They choose to convert anger and revenge, helplessness and despair, into actions of hope. They operate education, public awareness, and advocacy projects that foster humanization and empathy towards both Israelis and Palestinians.
The general mission is to generate dialogue between Palestinians and Israelis to promote reconciliation.
