FRIDAY, 30 MAY 2014 00:00

As part of an organizational restructuring, ALLMEP announced today that it has begun an immediate search for a U.S. director.  The organization seeks a dynamic, creative, and articulate U.S. director to lead and implement its development, advocacy, outreach, and marketing programs in the United States. This position provides a rare opportunity to contribute to Israeli and Palestinian peace and security by building a strong network of supporters in the United States; serving as the voice and advocate for tens of thousands of Israelis and Palestinians, Arabs and Jews who are building cooperation and a foundation for lasting peace; and building bridges between those regional peacebuilders and the many Americans of all backgrounds who care deeply about peace in the region.

ALLMEP is the coalition of over 80 non-governmental organizations that promote people-to-people cooperation, coexistence, and reconciliation between tens of thousands of Israelis and Palestinians, Arabs and Jews in the Middle East. ALLMEP builds the foundation for long-term peace, security, and stability by raising awareness and increasing resources for these critical cooperative efforts while also creating more collaboration and coordination among member projects. It works to build a thriving community and movement of Israelis, Palestinians, and international supporters who unite in support of a mutually beneficial two-state solution, coexistence, and equality.
