The Good Shepherd Collective
GSC raises awareness of the violent and unjust structures operating in the Holy Land and provides educational resources and action items to ring in the broad changes that will usher in peace. GSC understands violence to be rooted in the systems and laws that guide civil formation and order. As such, it rejects the binary discourse of “Israelis vs. Palestinians” and instead the focus is on the structural oppression that leads to violence. There for, GSC organizes to change the policies and laws that underpin these structures through grassroots campaigns. In this way, advocacy campaigns call for the rights of all people and seek to build broad coalitions across movements to usher in a new era of justice. Though centered in the South Hebron Hills, GSC’s understanding of justice demands cross-movement cooperation.
