Defending Palestinians’ Rights: How We Make Change

November 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

 A Presentation by Jessica Montell, Israeli Human Rights Leader

Jessica Montell will speak about the current situation regarding Palestinian human rights, the climate for the Israeli human rights community and the specific work of HaMoked: Center for the Defence of the Individual, an Israeli human rights organization with the main aim of assisting Palestinians of the occupied territories whose rights are violated due to Israel’s policies.

Montell is the Executive Director of the Israeli human rights organization HaMoked and a leading figure in the Israeli human rights community for two decades. For thirteen years she headed the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem.

In 2011, Ms. Montell was selected by Ha’aretz as one of “the year’s 10 most influential Anglo immigrants.” In 2013, the UK-based Action on Armed Violence selected Jessica as one of the 100 most influential people working to make the world a safer place. Ms. Montell is a frequent speaker and commentator on human rights, international humanitarian law and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
