Parents Circle

The Parents Circle – Families Forum (PCFF) is an organisation made up of more than 600 bereaved Israeli and Palestinian families who have all lost an immediate family member in the conflict. Members of PCFF have undertaken a joint effort in the midst of ongoing conflict and violence to transform their incredible loss and pain into a catalyst for reconciliation, tolerance and peace. The long-term goal of the PCFF is to build trust between both sides by initiating a process of reconciliation. PCFF brings people together through person-to-person reconciliation programmes, holds dialogue meetings for youth and adults, and promotes its message through meeting with leaders and politicians and through public and media activities.
