While in Palestine and Israel, EAs engage in protective presence. Our very presence protects vulnerable communities. It deters the Israeli military and armed settler groups from violating human rights of civilians and makes local communities feel safer. EAs monitor and report human rights violations, bringing eyewitness accounts to the world’s attention. Our EAs support acts of nonviolent resistance alongside local Palestinian and Israeli peace activists and stand in solidarity with local churches.
