U.S. Speaking Tour February 2024

In the aftermath of October 7th and the ongoing war in Gaza, it is clearer than ever that the only possible solution in which Israelis and Palestinians survive and thrive is one created together.

A Land For All has been working for more than a decade on developing paradigm-shifting practical solutions to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As a shared movement of top Israeli and Palestinian policy analysts, researchers, journalists, and jurists, ALFA offers a path forward from this unspeakably shattering moment into a truly better future.

For the first time in two decades, there is a new opportunity to build support for a cooperation-based model for the “day after” in place of the confrontation-based model promoted by the current extremist leadership on both sides. It is imperative that A Land for All’s perspective – both visionary and practical – be part of the political discourse in the time ahead.

We invite you to hear from our two Co-Executive Directors and a Board member as they speak about our vision and practical work in meeting that challenge now. From Jan 30th-Feb 13th they will tour the US with meetings and public events in Pittsburgh, SF, LA, DC, NY and NJ. Please follow this page and our WhatsApp group for updates on public events.
