Together We Rise: Palestine as a Model of Resistance

Together We Rise: Palestine as a Model of Resistance is a political education curriculum providing critical voices, context, and resources that make clear the connections between the struggle for Palestinian rights and the struggles of Indigenous, Black, and brown communities, and other marginalized groups impacted by US policies, both within and outside of US borders. With the three tracks below, Together We Rise has something for everyone — from those who know little about the issue to seasoned organizers — to help deepen analysis, build relationships, and sharpen skills to work for justice from the US to Palestine.

Together We Rise is an articulation of our vision for freedom, justice, and equality for the Palestinian people in a world without racism and oppression. In order to achieve that, it is necessary to understand that all forms of oppression are interconnected and reinforce each other, and that none can be fought in isolation. Work for justice for one community must be part of a vision of justice for all.

Through Together We Rise, we share the history of the Palestinian struggle, as well as the long histories of joint struggle and lessons learned across movements. We do this in order to draw connections and articulate dissimilarities between struggles, identify opportunities for solidarity and the refinement of our organizing principles and practices, and highlight how Israel’s Zionist project, while most directly impacting Palestinians, has also played a role in the oppression of people across the region and world.

We hope you can use this curriculum as a resource in your community. Sign up here for information on webinars, toolkits, infographics, action alerts, resources, and more.

Israel’s oppression of the Palestinian people.

The global systems of oppression bearing down on Indigenous, Black, brown, queer, and other marginalized communities from the US to Palestine include white supremacy, settler colonialism, imperialism, capitalism, dictatorships, sexism, and heteropatriarchy. They manifest daily through police brutality; mass incarceration and torture; gentrification and forced displacement; surveillance and repression; denial of access to basic needs; militarized borders and refugee bans; airstrikes and military incursions; and the ability of corporations to profit off of all of this suffering.
How particularly are US and Israeli colonialism and racism connected,
what can we learn from Palestinian, Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and other freedom
struggles, and how can we apply those lessons in this political moment?
