OneVoice Movement

The OneVoice Movement is a global initiative that supports grassroots activists in Israel, Palestine, and internationally who are working to build the human infrastructure needed to create the necessary conditions for a just and negotiated resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Mission Statement
 



Take a stand with our #ADDYOURVOICE campaign

Choose Hope. Take Action.

Change is possible. 

At OneVoice, we are committed to moving a critical mass of Israelis and Palestinians to reject the status quo and unlock the full potential of both peoples.

Our work is to empower grassroots activists and moderate leaders—Israelis, Palestinians, and their global allies—to build a future where everyone can live with mutual respect, security, and justice. The hard work of peacebuilding must be done by Israelis and Palestinians. But it will only happen with a global belief that change is possible.

We—all of us—are responsible for keeping the conflict and the conviction of hope top-of-mind. Through multi-channel education, personal engagement, and collaborative partnerships, OneVoice is building momentum and helping supporters around the globe effect change. Through our vast network of regional changemakers, we create space in the US for necessary and inclusive dialogue about the conflict. Our monthly podcast, EveryDay Voices, brings authentic perspectives to thousands of listeners around the globe.

Together, we can drive toward a resolution to the conflict—in this generation.

OneVoice Statement on Israel-Hamas Ceasefire

We’re relieved that last night Israel and Hamas agreed to a ceasefire. Our thoughts remain with everyone impacted by this horrific crisis. We hope the victims rest in peace, and may their loved ones find comfort in their memories. 

Although we are glad the worst seems to be over, what we’ve seen in the last two weeks underscores a crucial fact: The status quo in Israel-Palestine is untenable. “Ceasefire” is not a synonym for peace, or justice, or security. 

Looking ahead, we must continue to aid Israelis and Palestinians dedicated to breaking the cycle of violence that has caused their people so much suffering. Ultimately, the moderate majorities in both societies are the ones who can foster that sort of transformation. They deserve all the help we can muster—today, tomorrow, and in the years to come.

Our hearts are hurting, yet our resolve to aid those peacebuilders has never been stronger. Moreover, we remain driven to empower the international community by providing the tools, resources, and perspectives needed to generate solutions-oriented activism around the world in service of long-term conflict resolution.

OneVoice Statement on Recent Violence

The OneVoice Movement wholeheartedly condemns the latest round of violence in Israel-Palestine. As the situation worsens, we call on regional leaders to cast aside vicious rhetoric, to cease the use of excessive force, and to do all they can to avoid further escalation.

Like so many of these calamities, what’s unfolding was preventable. Unfortunately, the specter of unjust evictions in Sheikh Jarrah begot Israeli settler attacks on Palestinians, incendiary balloons and rockets from Gaza, Palestinian attacks on Jewish Israelis, and a disproportionate response from Israeli military and police. Now, hundreds are injured, Israelis and Palestinians alike are sheltering from aerial assaults, and civilians—including children—have lost their lives.

Today and always, we must fight back against extremism wherever we see it. Fringe voices are trying to capitalize on this moment to further inflame tensions. We cannot let that happen. 

Instead, we must champion the moderate majorities in each society. In the days and weeks ahead, OneVoice will do so by redoubling our efforts to amplify the voices of a diverse slate of activists through our podcast, social media channels, and beyond. These changemakers and peacebuilders are the ones we must listen to in this precarious time. And, ultimately, when the conditions exist to end this conflict, they will be the ones leading the way. 

Our thoughts are with those who are grieving. May the victims of today's violence rest in peace; may their loved ones find peace and comfort in their memories; and may we all remain committed to ending this conflict and needless suffering.

DemocraTV: Your chance to safeguard Israel’s democracy

Recent events have demonstrated the urgent need for a truly independent media outlet in Israel. 

Now, more than ever, Israeli democracy needs brave citizens who are unafraid to stand up and speak out. It is of the utmost importance that a free, hard-hitting, courageous, and uncompromising press exists in Israel that is independent and unafraid to address big problems.

DemocraTV is Darkenu's answer to that call. Using the most advanced technology at its disposal, DemocraTV allows for extensive and autonomous live coverage of social movements. The collaborative network, in which the viewers choose the topics and interviewees themselves, provides targeted news-related programs. Those interviewees include former prime ministers, cultural icons, and key leaders in the 2021 election. 

DemocraTV's approach has resonated with the public in a big way: In the first nine months alone, 2.3 million Israelis tuned in, and more than 7,100  became partners by contributing small monthly donations. 

To continue growing, however, DemocraTV needs our help. This is a rare opportunity to push back against partisan coverage that values profits over truth.

To learn more about DemocraTV, listen to our podcast episode with its lead editor, and check out its English YouTube channel.

Darkenu, the movement responsible for this unique initiative, is Israel’s largest non-partisan civil society movement. It organizes, amplifies, and empowers the moderate majority of Israelis to influence government policy and public discourse. As a grassroots movement, employees and volunteers work daily across Israel—door by door, town by town—setting up stalls in public centers, organizing house meetings, events, demonstrations, and protest vigils in an effort to strengthen justice, equality, mutual respect, and democratic values in Israel.

Its goals are to promote:

  1. Israel as a national home for the Jewish people and a democratic state for all its citizens.
  2. The necessity of a continuous effort to reach a diplomatic agreement that will eventually result in separation into two states and ensure Israel’s security.
  3. Social and economic justice, equal opportunities, and civil solidarity within the State of Israel.
  4. The eradication of incitement, division, corruption, and racism in all forms within the State of Israel.

Through this partnership, Darkenu and DemocraTV will remain at the forefront of the struggle for socio-economic justice and free media in Israel, while leading the pushback against extremist discourse threatening the very essence of Zionism.

OneVoice Statement on the Passing of Saeb Erekat

NEW YORK -- All of us at the OneVoice Movement are deeply saddened by the passing of senior Palestinian official and Secretary General of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Saeb Erekat. 

Dr. Erekat was an early advocate of our work and a longtime friend of OneVoice. We shared a vision of an independent, viable and vibrant Palestine that lived up to the potential of its people. His decades of work and advocacy—for nonviolence, for justice, for a two-state solution—has influenced generations of peacebuilders and left a lasting impact on those working toward an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. 

We send our heartfelt condolences to Dr. Erekat’s family, friends and colleagues during this painful time.

OneVoice Statement on Proposed Israeli Plans of West Bank Annexation

NEW YORK -- “From our founding in 2002, the OneVoice Movement has been driven by a vision of an independent and viable Palestinian state alongside a safe and secure Israel, where Palestinians and Israelis are able to each realize their national and individual aspirations, building a future based upon principles of security, justice, dignity and free of conflict. 

“That is why unilateral action like Israeli annexation of any part of the West Bank is so dangerous. Such a move would further limit already severe freedom of movement restrictions for Palestinians, create a hostile environment very likely leading to increased escalations of clashes and violent incidents, all while making the people of both countries less secure. 

“To be clear: an annexation agenda poses an irreversible threat to the prospects of a viable and independent Palestinian state on one hand and calls into question the ability to Israel to be a national home for the Jewish people and a democratic state for all its citizens on the other.

“All of these considerations are exactly why we have redoubled our efforts to raise awareness of the threats of annexation and mobilize opposition to it. This is our fight, and we will not stop working to help secure the right for self-determination, security and dignity for both Israelis and Palestinians.”
