What is the path forward for Israeli democracy? What issues will define the struggle for equality and democracy in Israel in the new Knesset? In the new political landscape, how will we work to defend democracy and our core values like equality and social justice? What is the role of civil society in setting the agenda?
As Israelis make sense of election results this April, join NIF for a conversation on its implications and a look at the path ahead for Israeli democracy.
Michal Sella is the director of Shatil’s Center for Policy Change, which works to develop and disseminate skills and strategies for social change in Israel. Previously, Michal was the development manager of The Whistle, the Israeli fact-checking organization; a parliamentary advisor at the Knesset; a journalist and co-editor at Channel 2; and a pedagogical coordinator at Hashomer Hatzair youth movement.
The New Israel Fund is the leading organization advancing and defending democracy in Israel. Widely credited with building Israeli progressive civil society, we have provided over $300 million to more than 900 organizations since our inception in 1979. Learn more about NIF on our website at www.nif.org.
NIF doesn’t support or oppose any candidate or political party for election; we look at the big picture and share the most important stories about issues that affect Israelis from all walks of life.
Light refreshments will be served.
