About 14 Friends Of Palestine

Our Purpose

To help end the suffering of Palestinians under the Israeli occupation, and to help bring peace in the Middle East without resorting to violence, anti-Semitism, or having to drive over the Richmond Bridge.

How We Started

On Saturday 4th December 2004, a group of 14 friends met in Marin to discuss how they could help reduce the suffering of the Palestinian people under the Israeli Occupation.

Several small fundraisers were planned, as well as various outreach projects.  These have continued ever since.

What We Do

Most of the big organizations helping the Palestinians are in the East San Francisco Bay, (Jewish Voice for Peace, Middle East Children’s Alliance, Americans for A Palestinian State, to name just a few). However, there are many people here in Marin that want to help the Palestinians without having to drive to the East Bay. So we organize fundraisers and do other projects locally.

We provide a pool of people here in Marin to help any of the big organizations in any way they need us, as well as run our own outreach events.

Anyone is welcome to join us. Members choose which projects they wish to get involved with. You don’t have to take part in everything! It goes without saying, however, that anyone promoting violence, prejudice, or racism will not be welcomed amongst us. Criticism of the Israeli government’s land-grabbing policies at the expense of the Palestinian people, and their demolition of Palestinian homes, however, is another matter.

Our Own Special Project

We also provide educational materials to local schools, such as the book ‘A Little Piece of Ground’ by Elizabeth Laird.
