I hope you are well. Just a quick note about an innovative new platform I want to share with you.
When people ask us to describe the work we do at Just Vision, we often say we tell stories and embed ideas in order to educate and activate audiences. These stories focus on real people who are working to end the occupation and resolve the conflict.
When my friend, artist Jonathan Harris, first showed me his new storytelling platform, Cowbird, I was moved by the intimate experience he created. He invited me to help form what he described as "an encyclopedia of human experience," and I saw it as an elegant platform to share some of the stories of everyday courage that we've been documenting over the years.
I encourage you to visit the site to see some of the people we've highlighted, including Israeli human rights lawyer Gaby Lasky and Palestinian activist Issa Amro, Rabbi Arik Ascherman of Rabbis for Human Rights and some members of our dedicated Jerusalem team including Irene Nasser and Rula Salameh.
