Raise Awareness in Your Community
Inform people in your community about the plight of Palestinian refugees and their right to return. Fact-sheets and materials in the Advocacy and Training Tools section of our website are available for this purpose.
Encourage Accurate Journalism
Write editorials and articles for your local press on the issue of Palestinian refugees and their right to return. If you read or watch something that does not adequately explain the issues facing Palestinian refugees, respond with a letter to the editor or television station. Be brief, positive, and use facts to back up your arguments. Make sure to also write letter of encouragement for articles or presentations that accurately represent the refugee issue.
Organize a Fact-finding Visit
Work within your local organizations (unions, schools, faith-based groups, municipalities, etc..) to bring a delegation to meet with Palestinian refugees and IDPs in Palestine and/or neighboring host countries. Contact us for help with planning the schedule of such visits. In addition, make contact with and learn how to support Palestinian refugee living near you.
Order and Distribute our Publications
You can order our books and other publications directly from this website, or contact us to make a bulk order for distribution to bookstores, at events, or directly to your friends, family and neighbors. Ask your local library to order our publications, and if there are any bookshops in your area that might be interested in including our books on their shelves, let us know.
Translate our Materials
Language should not be a barrier for people wanting to learn more about Palestinian refugees and their rights. If you are able to translate any of our materials into another language, please let us know so we can make the translation available to as many people as possible.
Meet with experts and awareness-raising committees in your area and participate in their activities, in particular those working on anti-apartheid, right of return and BDS campaigns. These activities can include writing letters to decision-makers, petitions, sponsoring public debates, holding film presentations and exhibitions, lobbying and staging public protests. Hold your political representatives accountable.
