“There can be no change for us, without us” is the Association’s philosophy of how social change should be promoted. Therefore, when calling for significant policy change, we mobilize activist and leadership groups that support and lead the struggle with us. These groups are guided by the Association’s staff.
Some of these groups are consistent and have been working together for years while others join forces for short intervals and then continue to work with us on an individual basis.
Today, the Association leads activist groups on a variety of topics:
THE ALLIANCE of TEACHING ASSISTANTS
Established in 2011 by kindergarten assistants working for local authorities …
“YOU ARE THE FOCUS OF ATTENTION”
Bedouin women groups working to promote civil and political involvement of women. The groups are led by the non-profit organization, Sidreh.
“BUILDING A SHARED FUTURE” – WOMEN BRINGING PEACE
These groups work to promote implementation of the principles of UN Security Council Resolution 1325. The leadership of these groups collaborate with Midreshet Adam and Women Wage Peace.
NOTHING ABOUT US – WITHOUT US: YOUNG ACTIVISTS
A group of young women activists aged 18-25, from various backgrounds, working together to bring about policy change relating to welfare, housing, employment and education relevant for their age group. The group is led by The Women’s Courtyard and the Forum of Young Women’s NGOs.
SEXUAL VIOLENCE WITHIN THE HEALTH SYSTEM
A group that is being put together by the Haifa branch of the Itach-Maaki. This group will deal with promoting policy and raising awareness of the widespread incidence of sexual violence against women while receiving medical treatment.
