For more than a decade, the Alliance for Middle East Peace (ALLMEP) and a broad coalition of organizations across the ideological and political spectrum have been advocating for "The Partnership Fund For Peace." This fund would provide a dedicated, well-resourced instrument focused on strengthening people-to-people programs, developing economic cooperation, expanding dialogue, and furthering the ideals of coexistence and reconciliation in Israel and the Palestinian Territories. Its long term objective is to keep the possibility of a two state solution relevant and tangible.
On July 24th, the Middle East Partnership for Peace Act (MEPPA) was passed with bipartisan support in the U.S. House of Representatives providing $250 million over 5 years as the first step to provide an infusion of over $100 million to radically scale up peace and reconciliation programming. And now the legislation moves to the Senate.
Join us on August 27th to learn about the legislation and the impact the fund would have on grassroots peace-building and economic development efforts in the region from those doing the work. And learn what you can do to help champion this vital piece of legislation.
