We are back!Posted: October 13, 2015
We are back! The Quaker Palestine Israel Network website is back up and running after a period of inactivity. The members of the new Steering Committee, Lauren Brownlee (Bethesda Monthly Meeting), Lauren Ballester (Plymouth Monthly Meeting), Ted Klyce (Madison, WI Meeting), Jennifer Bing (American Friends Service Committee, Middle East program liaison), Lucy Duncan (Green Street Meeting), and Steve Tamari, clerk (St. Louis Meeting), want to acknowledge the efforts of our former members Maia Hallward, Lucia Kalinosky, Carol Nickle, and Tory Smith.
We—like so many in Quaker and social justice circles more broadly—were deeply saddened by the passing of a founding member and Steering Committee clerk Tony Bing on March 20, 2015. Tony was a life-long and tireless advocate for justice for Palestinians and a mentor and friend to so many of us. He is dearly missed.
This website will continue to serve as a clearinghouse for information and links related to Quakers and the struggle for justice in Israel-Palestine.
