Brit Tzedek announces...

Grassroots Leadership Training Institute &
National Advocacy Days 2008

June 21-24, 2008     Washington, DC

Where pro-Israel, pro-peace activists come together to organize, advocate and make an impact in the nation's capital.

Participant testimonials from GLTI/NAD 2007:

Congresspersons, Senators, and their aides were so emphatic about the necessity of having a grassroots organization such as Brit Tzedek 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!

- Joe Elinoff

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'

- Yael Samuel

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 the many new friends made in the intense learning experience that was GLTI/NAD. Personally, my learning curve shot straight up in the air.

- Marcia Patt

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.

Grassroots Leadership Training Institute (June 21-22)

  • The only institute of its kind focused on training pro-Israel, pro-peace activists to organize in the American Jewish community for a two-state solution!
  • Workshops and sessions designed to strengthen our grassroots network, build your chapter, empower new leaders, better deal with the media, and more effectively communicate the pro-Israel, pro-peace message.
  • Sessions will be available for both experienced and new Brit Tzedek activists!
  • Opportunities to network with other Brit Tzedek activists from around the country.

National Advocacy Days (June 22-24)

  • Keynote address on recent Arab-Israeli peace developments from Mideast experts.  Previous speakers include: Daniel Levy, Mara Rudman, Rob Malley, and Amjad Attallah.
