JCRC is proud to have supported The Middle East Partnership for Peace Act, which involved advocating for the bill to members of Indiana’s Congressional delegation. This bill, which was included in the National Defense Authorization Act, passed Congress in December 2020, and was signed into law by President Trump. It provides $250 million for peace-building initiatives to bring Israelis and Palestinians together.  If you’re interested in learning more, we encourage you to visit the Alliance for Middle East Peace, which has been building international support for this kind of collective shared society building for over a decade.
