Grassroots Jerusalem is a platform for Palestinian community-based mobilisation, leadership and advocacy. GJ helps Palestinian communities in Jerusalem strategically address the humanitarian, developmental and political issues which systematically disempower and dispossess Palestinians across the city.

About The Platform

Like the Jerusalem city itself, the online platform is a product of the people. It's the evolving creation of partners from 80 community organisations in 40 Palestinian communities of Jerusalem.

For Palestinians, it’s a hub to organise, develop financial independence, share resources, and strategically resist the occupation. For others, it’s a hub to connect to Palestinian life in Jerusalem: from protests to shows, from political tours to volunteer opportunities.
