Accompaniment in Israel/Palestine: A Call to Serve with EAPPI
The Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) seeks to support local and international efforts to end the Israeli occupation and bring a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with a just peace, based on international law and relevant United Nations resolutions.
The mission of the EAPPI is to accompany Palestinians and Israelis in their non-violent actions and to carry out concerted advocacy efforts to end the occupation. Participants in the program monitor and report violations of human rights and international humanitarian law, support acts of non-violent resistance alongside local Christian and Muslim Palestinians and Israeli peace activists, offer protection through non-violent presence, engage in public policy advocacy and, in general, stand in solidarity with the churches and all those struggling against the occupation.
In this video, former Ecumenical Accompanier and Disciples member, Susan Brogden, shares her experience serving with the Ecumenical Accompaniment Program in Palestine and Israel in Bethlehem in 2018. After, learn more about the program from EAPPI-US National Program Coordinator, Karin Brown, including how to apply to be an EA. To learn more about the program, visit www.eappi.us.
