‘Million Hands’ is a grassroots campaign. We believe that the preservation of Israel as a Jewish democratic homeland is reliant on a two state agreement with the Palestinians and a narrowing of the social divide within Israel.
The campaign strives to create pressure on the political leadership to adhere to our objectives. Social media, grass roots activism and traditional media are all utilized to create pressure. The peak activity occurs during elections when the public is encouraged to vote for change.
