Our Mission

Jisoor's goal is to connect the Palestinian struggle with all struggles for liberation around the world.

Who we are

We are a group of Palestinian activists primarily based in the Chicago area. United by many causes, our primary goal is Palestinian liberation.

WHAT WE DO

The Palestinian people have been at the receiving end of every instrument of the neo-colonial system. These very systems are intimately integrated with the wider ecosystem of control and oppression that strangle people across the world. We are an organization that connects the communities and organizers around us in order to strengthen all of our movements in our fight against these systems. The question we always ask is, what problem is this movement tackling and how can we create a stronger network for collaboration?

dialogue driven events

Education is the bedrock of liberation movements, offering the knowledge and empowerment needed to challenge oppression, foster unity, and drive lasting change in pursuit of liberation. At the core of our work is our educational events focused on creating dialogue and dissecting our struggles.

Collaborative campaigning

Uniting multiple movements in organizing efforts harnesses our collective strength, enabling us to address the complex social and systemic issues that oppress our communities. In our events, political campaigns and large scale demonstrations, we strive towards a united front through which successful liberation movements are born.

Our Guiding Principles

Resistance until return

Zionism as ideology represents the festering..

a consistent culture of criticism.

We are principled in our organizing, yet we carry a consistent culture of criticism both personally and organizationally. This manifests through a sustained dedication to political education, not only in our external work, but more importantly within our internal structure.

No perspective is unquestionable and we strive to create spaces where opinions and beliefs (regarding our work) can be challenged honestly and productively.

Fostering a culture of radical love.

Fostering a culture of radical love between community members and organizers which means creating environments to foster understanding and empathy for differing opinions, beliefs and lifestyles internally and externally.

solidarity with every liberation struggle.

We unilaterally stand by every liberation struggle against imperialism and all forms of supremacy and exploitation with the understanding that liberation for Palestine must be actualized in tandem with liberation for all oppressed peoples.
