A volunteer steering committee was formed in October 2013 to commit to building a QPIN network to increase Quaker participation in efforts to end the Israeli occupation and build a lasting, just peace in Palestine and Israel. The committee will facilitate the sharing of ideas, energy, and experiences among Friends as they seek to educate their Meetings and Churches about Palestine & Israel and to encourage support for boycott and divestment campaigns, sanctions, and other efforts.
In its initial work, Steering Committee members will form a regular basis for communicating with each other and with members of the wider QPIN network and the Society of Friends.
