Advocacy Corps Issue (2024-2025) 

For the 2024-25 cohort, we are excited to announce that we will partner with the Middle East Policy team at FCNL! We are looking forward to building more advocacy and grassroots power for a just and lasting peace in the Middle East, starting with the important call for a permanent ceasefire. You can find more information about our current ask here, which calls for an immediate ceasefire, de-escalation, and humanitarian access to prevent further civilian harm in Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territory.
