PIEN’s mission is to be Australian Christians who seek lasting peace for the people of Palestine and Israel. We aim to equip and inform Australian churches, inspired by Christ’s vision for universal reconciliation.
We work on three key strategies:
- Educating Christians about the issues and equipping them to be strong, vocal advocates for a just peace;
- Persuading our parliamentary representatives – whether in the government or not – of the imperative and “rightness” of speaking up and acting for justice for all people in Palestine and Israel; and
- Expressing solidarity for and with all Palestinians, whether Christian or not.
We would be kidding if we claimed that PIEN can single-handedly bring peace to Palestine-Israel. But we cannot and should not stand idle in the midst of injustice! And thankfully we are part of a growing international movement which agrees it’s high time Palestinians were given a chance for life that is free from occupation, oppression, violence and harassment.
Christians, especially, are called to follow Christ, who began his ministry by proclaiming God’s call upon him to bring good news to the poor, release to the captives, sight to the blind and freedom to the oppressed (Luke 4: 18).
PIEN wants to be an active instrument for justice and peace. But we cannot do so without your support!
PIEN’s main expense is the the organisation’s part-time Executive Officer. However, this role always needs funding support, particularly if we want to be effective in our work. Our modest program of advocacy and education costs around $25,000 a year.
WILL YOU HELP US?
PIEN invites you to express your support for our work by offering financial support through a one-off or annual gift. No amount is too small, or too large!
Your gift at this time will enable us plan effectively for the coming year, and help us continue working for peace and justice in Palestine and Israel.
