Testimonials from participants in Brit Tzedek's Grassroots Leadership Training Institute and National Advocacy Days 2007
"Advocacy Days proved that not only is Brit Tzedek the fastest growing Jewish organization in America today, it is the one that speaks most to the hunger in the Jewish community by giving voice to our call for the US to actively engage in diplomacy that will lead to a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We heard again and again from our Congressional leaders on Capitol Hill: 'This is the voice we wanted to hear! Keep doing what you're doing, and keep coming back'"

"I came to Washington with low expectations regarding the effect our advocacy efforts might have on Congress. I left full of enthusiasm and a feeling of accomplishment. Congresspersons, Senators, and their aides were so complimentary of our activities, so emphatic about the necessity of having a grass-roots organization such as Brit Tzedek, with our main-stream views on Israeli/Palestinian peace issues, advocating in the halls of Congress, that I could not help but be delighted with what we had done! I will be there again next year."

"The thrill of having our fledgling chapter in San Diego being highlighted because of Rep. Susan Davis' sponsorship of the Mideast Peace Envoy resolution will not be forgotten. Nor will Rep. Davis moving personal remarks to us about her early connection to Israel that drives her dedication to the peace process over all other strategies. Nor will the many new friends made in the intense learning experience that was the National Advocacy Days and Grassroots Leadership Training Institute. Personally, my learning curve shot straight up in the air."

This year's advocacy days was one of the most empowering experiences I have had in more than a decade of working for a positive contribution to peace building for Israelis and Palestinians. I participated in the first BTVS conference and advocacy days, which although positive, left me feeling as if our small number was shouting in the wind. The difference between that experience and this is nothing short of miraculous. To see so many BTVS representatives working the Hill was empowering, and I truly felt as if the time has come for our message to be heard. The number of meetings we had with Congressional members and their staff and the QUALITY of those conversations is proof that BTVS is making a major contribution to the conversation on I/P in the U.S.
