The Good Shepherd Collective

We are a collective of individuals and organizations seeking to change the structures that perpetuate violence in the Holy Land. We understand violence to be rooted in the structures and laws that guide civil formation and order. As such, we reject the binary the discourse of “Israelis vs. Palestinians” and operate within an oppression model of understanding violence, peacemaking, and justice.

How the Good Shepherd Collective is building a movement of solidarity

Like many other Palestinian communities, our lives have been characterized by displacement and resisting further displacement. Our lives have been in a constant form of resistance in the pursuit of justice.

Tariq Hathaleen, Good Shepherd Collective

While we’ve watched nearly all our homes be demolished, and the communities around us be demolished, or at least live under the threat of demolition – we have hope. We have hope because we’ve been a part of successful campaigns and know that solidarity between broad movements can usher in justice.

Eid Hathaleen, Good Shepherd Collective

When people come to the communities and listen to our stories, when we talk about all of these painful events in the context of international law, people become invested this movement of justice. We continue to believe because we see the movement for justice growing.
